McConnell: Coleman should fight to the death for his seat
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell commented on the Minnesota U.S. Senate race. And as if this should surprise a soul: McConnell wants Norm Coleman to fight this recount and try any appeal in the upper courts, Politco says.
Because Minnesotans have unending patience.
More from Politico:
"This could end up in federal court based on the allegations of the Coleman campaign that there has not been a consistent manner of counting votes county by county," McConnell said. "I don't know where this ends."
Asked if he would encourage Coleman to take the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, McConnell said, "I would until we know who won."
McConnell also wouldn't say whether he'd support a revote in the race, saying, "All this will be decided in Minnesota, not up here."
