Top Senate Dem Aide: We Are Prepared To Swear In Franken “As Early As Possible Next Week”

I just asked a top Senate Democratic aide what the expectation is over there for the Minnesota Senate race, and whether Norm Coleman will concede and/or Al Franken will be finally declared the winner now that the Minnesota Supreme Court has ruled in Franken’s favor.

“Based on everything we have seen so far, we assume this is moving towards closure once and for all,” the source said. “Once the Secretary signs the certificate, and sends it to the Secretary of the Senate, we are prepared to swear in Sen.-elect Franken as early as possible next week.”
