Al Franken is the New Senator From Minnesota!

A Minnesota board on Monday certified results showing Democrat Al Franken winning the state’s U.S. Senate recount over Republican Norm Coleman, whose lawyer promised a legal challenge that probably will keep the race in limbo for months.

In this clip from  Minneapolis, Al Franken says “I am proud to stand before you as the next Senator from Minnesota.” Franken thanks election officials and his campaign staff while asking Norm Coleman to not file an election contest.

Mr. Franken gave these comments after being declared the winner in the Minnesota Senatorial Contest! The Democrats will now control nearly sixty percent of the votes in the Senate!
