If you're a political nut who has spent an unfortunate amount of time following Minnesota's U.S. Senate race unfold, it would only be fitting to see it officially end today with Al Franken's swearing-in ceremony in Washington, D.C.
Commuters on Interstate 94 will now have a constant reminder that Gov. Tim Pawlenty has the ultimate power to sign the state's election certificate for Al Franken to ensure the state fills their U.S. Senate seat as soon as possible.
Norm Coleman and Al Franken are raking in serious dough for their U.S. Senate seat fight, but they are in need of some big boosts to make it through the upcoming appeals. They've already spent $11 million and there's no end in sight.
