The three-judge panel charged with reviewing the votes cast in the tightly-contested Minnesota Senate race between Republican incumbent Norm Coleman and Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party challenger Al Franken has declared a winner in the race [...]
But the top lawyer for the Coleman camp, which has been heavily financed by Republican senators in Washington who have shown no bones about their willingness to drag the count out, dismissed the latest setback for his candidate as "really inconsequential." Attorney Ben Ginsberg promised an appeal to the Minnesota Supreme Court as the latest in the Coleman team's dead-ender strategy. That appeal must come within 10 days after the three-judge panel -- which was appointed by the high court to resolve the matter -- issues its final order.
