Minnesota is the cheese now that GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss has been declared the winner in Georgia's runoff.
Question(s) of the Day: Do the Democrats take the foot off the pedal in Minnesota now that they can't reach 60 Senate seats? What does this mean for Minnesota's Senate contest?
Absolutely not!!! The point of this election is not about 60 in the Senate!!! It's about who will represent our state! And who actually won! And who deserves to be defeated! If we have to live through six more years of Norm Coleman...arggh! I want to see Al Franken representing Minnesota, not that wiley Bush Boy Coleman.
