The ball will soon be in your court. My expectation is that you concede if you are behind and end this.

Norm Coleman, please be a man and concede - this is no longer funny. You are the laughing stock of the country, and the people of Minnesota spoke in November - THE MAJORITY OF US DO NOT WANT YOU. Not for dog catcher, not for a mayor, certainly not as a governor as we already have a loser republican that needs to be removed from that position, so Norm. GO AWAY. You never should have been a senator and if the late Paul Wellstone were alive today, you NEVER would have been handed the seat EVER.

It's time for the loser to step aside - whomever that is after today.

Really hoping the next phase is handled swiftly. With the opportunity to look more broadly at the issues at hand I'm hopeful that the MNSCOTUS keeps attempted delaying tactics in check. No reason we can't have this settled in a matter of weeks rather than months.

I think Norm is between a rock and a hard place. If he continues his challange, the people of the Minnesota will never elect him dog catcher. If he concedes, the Republican leadership will disown him . Does this mean the fat lady has sung?

Considering the seat has been vacant for months now and Minnesota hasn't been eliminated from the union, that makes me question why we need 2 senators. Neither one of these candidates is qualified for the job. Mr. Coleman has proven he doesn't have what it takes and do we really want another hollywood celebrity (or so he thinks he is) in Mn government who also doesn't have the qualifications? People still laugh at this state from the Ventura phase we went through. I say, lets ride it out with only 1 senator and in a few years reassess what Mn really needs.

The count is now beyond the point where Coleman has any mathematical chance of pulling ahead in the count.
