Reuters reports Franken will be announced as the winner in the Minnesota Senatorial contest by state officials, having won with a narrow 225-vote lead. The Republican candidate will likely challenge the result, his campaign team has announced. Franken, a noted satirist, is the candidate for the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party. His victory would enlarge the Democratic Senate majority to 58.

EDIT: CNN confirms.

Take a good look into what Mark Ritchie and his cronies have done to get Franken this supposed "win".

Frightening.

It was the state Supreme Court who decided that no rejected absentee ballots would be re-evaluated, not any candidate or political machine.

...and I might as well remove the question mark from the topic title now: CNN reports that the Supreme Court won't hold up an appeal by Coleman. Al Franken is now Senator for Minnesota, bringing the democratic majority in the Senate to 58.

That's awesome! I knew it was close, but I had no idea he won. That really makes my day!

I suppose if Franken and Ben Stein ran for president and vp (as unlikely as that is for sooo many reasons) you would have the Franken-Stein ticket. Would be in with a chance too: would appeal to Mummies, for example.
