Franken's Lead Certified

he Minnesota State Canvassing Board on Monday certified the results of the recount of Republican Sen. Norm Coleman's fight to retain his seat against Democrat Al Franken.

The results showed Franken with a 225-vote lead.
In other news, former Senator Norm Coleman closed his Senate offices.
Norm Coleman has closed his U.S. Senate offices.

Coleman's U.S. Senate term expired Saturday and is expected to be declared the loser this afternoon in his re-election bid against Democrat Al Franken.

The closure, announced by Coleman himself early this afternoon, affects four offices in Minnesota and one in Washington, D.C., all of which are paid for by Senate funds.
Could an official concession be far behind. Remember, he was the one that said the healing should begin!
