Coleman is Still Running for Senate

Norm Coleman will continue his legal battle with Al Franken for the U.S. Senate seat on the Minnesota ballot back in November.  When Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty announced that he would not be seeking a third term, there was speculation that Coleman might gracefully back out of the race and make a run for governor.  Instead, sources close to Coleman say they doubt he will quit before the U.S. Supreme Court Rules on the case.  (A ruling is expected from the Minnesota Supreme Court any day).

Minnesota Public Radio reports that a PAC calling itself the Progressive Change Campaign Committee reports that it’s raised $150,000 asking people to give $1 for each day that Norm Coleman does not concede the Minnesota Senate race.
