Court Declares Franken Has More Senate Votes

Court Declares Franken Has More Senate Votes
Coleman Likely To Appeal State Supreme Court


POSTED: Monday, April 13, 2009
UPDATED: 6:38 pm CDT April 13, 2009

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A Minnesota court has confirmed that Democrat Al Franken won the most votes in his 2008 Senate race against Republican Norm Coleman.

Monday's ruling isn't expected to be the final word because Coleman previously announced plans to appeal to the state Supreme Court. He has 10 days to do so. That appeal could mean weeks more delay in seating Minnesota's second senator.

After a statewide recount and seven-week trial, Franken stands 312 votes ahead. Franken actually gained more votes from the election challenge than Coleman, the candidate who brought it.

The state law Coleman sued under merely required three judges to determine who got the most votes and is therefore entitled to an election certificate. That critical certificate is on hold pending appeal.
