Cut The Losses

Senator Norm Coleman and the comedian Al Franken have been in a heated legal battle over the Senate seat from Minnesota since November.

The court decisions have all ruled in Franken's favor and over the weekend Governor Pawlenty admitted he was ready to declare Al Franken the winner of last year's election.

The Minnesota State Supreme Court is also expected to make a ruling at any time with regards to the contested election results.

To date, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has contributed over $1 million to help defray Coleman's legal expenses.

The GOP will face major challenges in 2010 and if they wish to capitalize on the Democrat Party's numerous blunders they will need every penny in their warchest.

It is gravely unfortunate but the time has come for Senator Coleman to concede the election. The GOP is unable to move forward with their agenda while simultaneously defending Coleman.

Governor Pawlenty has decided not to seek another term in office, thereby presenting a great opportunity in the future for Coleman.
