Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), the chairman of the DSCC, has released this statement in response to the Coleman legal team's suggestion
that the Minnesota election court could throw out the whole result:
"Today Norm Coleman's camp has reached a new low. After five weeks in court, they are now asking for the results of the election to be thrown out. That's not how we do elections in this country. Minnesota's hand-recount has been one of the most careful and thorough in the history of the United States. When you are behind in the vote, you can try to pretend the election never happened, but for the sake of the people of Minnesota - and the country - it is time to stop throwing gas on the fire and allow everyone to move on, so that Minnesota has full representation, the Senate has all of its members, and we can get done the work we were all elected to do."
