DNC Chair Kaine Blasts Coleman For Suggesting Election Be Thrown Out

March 3, 2009 3:25 p.m.

The new suggestion by the Coleman legal team, that the whole election could be thrown out, has now attracted condemnation from yet another Democratic leader. Here’s the new statement from DNC chairman Tim Kaine:

“The people of Minnesota have spoken. It’s time for Norm Coleman to accept the voters’ decision, do what is best for his state and country and stop standing in the way of a Senator being seated. The stakes for our country are too high right now to suggest that the results of a democratic election, exhaustive recount, and legal proceedings be thrown out just because Norm Coleman doesn’t like the results.”
