Minn. GOP: Today's court ruling "wrongly disenfranchised" voters
Minnesota Republican Party Chairman-elect Tony Sutton issued a statement in reaction to the state Supreme Court's ruling in favor of Al Franken. Norm Coleman has since conceded and Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced he will sign Franken's election certificate today.
"Today's ruling wrongly disenfranchised thousands of Minnesotans who deserve to have their votes counted. Alongside Senator Coleman, the Republican Party of Minnesota has fought to make sure every vote counts and all voters are treated fairly and uniformly. As we move forward, our deeply flawed election system must be dramatically improved to ensure our state's elections are fair, accurate and reliable."
