GOP On Coleman’s Court Defeat: Silence

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

NBC News points out an interesting thing about the aftermath of Al Franken’s win yesterday in the Minnesota election court: Other than the Coleman campaign itself, the Republicans don’t seem to be saying anything about it.

The national Dems have been quick to call for Coleman to concede the race, rather than appeal and keep Franken’s win bottled up in court. But there hasn’t been anything from the RNC or the NRSC. And the Minnesota GOP, which has staunchly advocated for Coleman throughout this whole ordeal, hasn’t updated their Web site with any new statement.

Indeed, I’ve personally asked the NRSC for comment, and haven’t gotten anything.

The only Republican statement that has come out was from the Coleman campaign itself, vowing to appeal the decision — and even here, it was a press release from Coleman’s legal adviser Ben Ginsberg, not Norm himself.
