Franken campaign seeks election certificate
ST. PAUL -- Al Franken's campaign wants him granted an election certificate even as Minnesota's U.S. Senate results are challenged in court. That certificate could allow him to be seated in the Senate.
The Franken campaign sent a letter today to Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Secretary of State Mark Ritchie asking for their signatures on an election certificate by the end of the day.
Ritchie said in a statement he will not do that and Pawlenty has said he can't.
