The Minnesota Supreme Court has ordered that Democrat Al Franken be certified as the winner of the state’s long-running Senate race.
The state’s top court rejected a legal challenge from Republican Norm Coleman, whose options for regaining the Senate seat are dwindling.
Norm Coleman, be a man and drop your ridiculous suit.
Governor Pawlenty, the ball is in your court — sign the election certificate. Your state is depending on you.
UPDATE: ThinkProgress has more on the court decision.
UPDATE: Norm Coleman is holding a news conference at 1:00 pm (PT), 4:00 pm ET). Al Franken will hold a news conference an hour later.
UPDATE: Coleman has surrendered.
