Norm Coleman has signed on
as a consultant with the Republican Jewish Coalition, a surprising development from somebody who has insisted he won his election and will be seated when the Minnesota legal battles are over:
RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said, "We are thrilled and honored to have Norm Coleman join us at the RJC at this critical time. We look forward to having the benefit of his experience and wise counsel to help the RJC plot its future course. We are confident that in a few months Senator Coleman will return to his seat in the Senate, but until that time, we are eager for him to travel across the country on our behalf and to be an important voice within the organization."
During his visit to Capitol Hill yesterday, Coleman continued to project optimism even as he was busy cleaning out his desk
. "We have got a good shot at this and so I proceed with that in mind," said Coleman. "But logistically you have to move out of the office."
