Franken is one step closer to Washington

According to a post by Joan Walsh at, the Democratic National Committee has issued a news alert stating that the three-judge panel supervising the Minnesota senatorial election recount has declared Democratic candidate Al Franken the winner of the recount.

Norm Coleman and his legal counsel have vowed to carry their appeal to the Minnesota state supreme court, which must be filed within the next ten days. If the Minnesota state supreme court declines the appeal, that will be the ball game.

So, while Al Franken might not be taking his seat in D.C. just yet, he has inched that much closer to doing so by summer.

Fingers crossed.
