Al Franken is finally a member of the U.S. Senate. Minnesota’s Supreme Court dismissed former Senator Norm Coleman’s challenge to the state’s November election results and declared his Democratic challenger the winner in late June. The Court’s unanimous opinion declared that now Senator Al Franken “received the highest number of votes legally cast” and was entitled “to receive the certificate of election as United States senator from the state of Minnesota.”
Now that Al Franken has joined the Senate, there will be 60 members in the Senate Democratic caucus. It took a long time for this fight to finally end and now the citizens of Minnesota have two senators to represent them. Sometimes it takes a long time for a good thing to happen and in this case the result was a good thing for the people of Minnesota and I believe for the country.
