Al Franken is a big fat senator
Coleman’s 215-vote lead on election night prompted a recount, which Franken won. Coleman appealed the decision, but today the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled unanimously in Franken’s favour.
Franken will now become Democratic Party’s sixtieth vote in the Senate – and because sixty votes are required to overturn a filibuster, Franken’s victory is also a substantial win for the Democrats in general.
