Norm Coleman appeared yesterday on the Armstrong Williams radio show, and the Minnesota GOP has posted this interesting excerpt of Norm responding to Williams’ question regarding how Minnesotans feel about their current lack of full representation.
“Those of us who have had the honor to serve as public servants, public officials, we serve with the consent of the governed,” Coleman said. “You’re not gonna get that consent if the governed — if the citizens — don’t think the guy who got the most votes is the guy that got elected, the guy that sits in the office.”
He later added: “But people in Minnesota understand that you’ve gotta get it right.”
Where were you eight years ago, Norm, when we really needed you?
