Interesting article today in Roll Call about the race for Minnesota’s second seat, and Coleman’s desire – or lack of – to continue appealing the decisions that have all come in favor of Al Franken.
From Roll Call,
“Sources close to Coleman say the former Senator would likely give up his legal battle and accept defeat if the Minnesota Supreme Court decides in Franken’s favor. That’s because Coleman anticipates that Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) would ultimately sign Franken’s certification papers…
Still, sources say Coleman, who is vying for a second term, does not have the same appetite to pursue his case in federal court as he did for his state court battle.
‘He will be done’ if he loses at the state Supreme Court, one Republican predicted.”
