Coleman concedes, Al Franken to Senate for Minnesota

From ABC News:

The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled in favor of comedian-turned-Democratic candidate Al Franken in his prolonged battle to become a U.S. Senator.

"I received a very gracious call from Sen. Coleman. He wished me well. And we agreed that it is time to bring this state together," said Senator-elect Franken during his victory speech outside his home in Minnesota.


Franken's defeat over Coleman provides Democrats with a super-majority in the U.S. Senate with 60 seats on their side of the aisle. President Obama clearly won't be able to count on all 60 votes on every single issue, but it certainly provides a boost to the White House and Harry Reid as they enter into policy negotiations with the Republican leadership in the Senate.
