The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that Democrat Al Franken won more votes than Republican Norm Coleman.
Here's the opinion.
Update: The Minnesota Supreme Court is not ordering Gov. Pawlenty to issue the election certificate. The court said: "Al Franken received the highest number of votes legally cast and is entitled to receive the certificate of election."
You got your wish, a ruling before you go on leave. Such power you have.
Tom, before you go, has anyone heard from the Gov today on whether the Court's statement that Sen-elect Franken is entitled to the certificate of election is clear enough, or is he going to wiggle out of it, again?
Once you find out - enjoy your pat leave!
