If Franken loses, will he appeal? He won't say


Al Franken and his legal team have been harsh critics of the way in which Norm Coleman's team argued their election contest. But wouldn't Franken do the same thing if he were on the other side? Probably.

Franken spoke briefly with reporters today at the Minnesota Capitol and sidestepped questions about what he would do if he loses the election contest.

More from the Associated Press:
Democrat Al Franken expressed confidence Wednesday that he'll win the Minnesota Senate election trial, but he declined to rule out an appeal if he doesn't.

He sidestepped a question about possible appeals, just after ripping Republican Norm Coleman over the way he's conducted a lawsuit challenging Franken's post-recount lead.

"We're taking this one step at a time, but I anticipate that we're going to be happy with the court decision," Franken said.
