Senator-elect Al Franken

The Minnesota Board of Canvassers certified Al Franken the winner over former U.S. Senator Norm Coleman.

The board certified Franken’s 225-vote lead over Coleman, moving the Democrat one step closer to unseating the first-term lawmaker. That tally includes both the hand recount of votes throughout the state, as well as hundreds of absentee ballots that had previously been disqualified for no stated, legal reason.

Coleman’s campaign has said it will file an election challenge within the seven days required by Minnesota law.
Give it up, Norm. You had a nice run, but it's over.
