The Minnesota Supreme Court has confirmed what we already knew—By a 5-0 margin the Minnesota court has decided that Democrat Al Franken beat Republican Norm Coleman in last November’s Minnesota U.S. Senate race.

Here is a story about the decision from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Here is Al Franken’s web home.

It is good that Mr. Franken has won back the seat once held by the great liberal Paul Wellstone. 

Senator Wellstone served in the Senate  from 1991 until his death in a plane crash just before the November 2002 election.   

After Senator Wellstone’s death, Wellstone Action! was established to, among other goals, help train a new generation of liberal and progressive activists and campaigners.

Here is the link to Wellstone Action.

I have made three donations to Wellstone Action. I’m overdue to make another contribution. Please review the Wellstone Action! link and see if you feel this group merits your support. 

Here is information on the life of Paul Wellstone.
