Franken-Coleman Update: Norm Returns To Senate As Non-Senator

Al Franken, has been declared the winner of the Minnesota contest but has yet to be sworn in as court battles continue.

Former Sen. Norm Coleman of Minnesota is on Capitol Hill today meeting with his erstwhile colleagues.

"I'm hopeful I'll be back here," said Coleman as he entered the Senate's LBJ room for a lunch meeting with the Republican conference.

His Democratic opponent, Al Franken, has been declared the winner of the Minnesota contest but has yet to be sworn in as court battles continue. Coleman said that the court struggle has been extremely expensive and that he's continuing to raise money for his legal fund -- but wouldn't be doing so during the meeting.
