Hey, remember that second seat for Minnesota in the U.S. Senate?
That's never getting filled…
Texas Sen. John Cornyn is threatening "World War III" if Democrats try to seat Al Franken in the Senate before Norm Coleman can pursue his case through the federal courts.
Cornyn, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, acknowledges that a federal challenge to November’s elections could take "years" to resolve. But he’s adamant that Coleman deserves that chance — even if it means Minnesota is short a senator for the duration.
There is an up side to whole ordeal, though, Minnesotites.
I'm pretty sure that having to deal with just one senator is probably preferable to having to deal with Franken or Coleman.
