Campaign Round-Up: Franken To Be Seated? Blago Out By February? Jeb Will Run?

Election '08

MONDAY'S CAMPAIGN ROUND-UP....Today's installment of campaign-related news items that wouldn't generate a post of their own, but may be of interest to political observers.

  • In the wake of last week's Minnesota Supreme Court ruling, lawyers for Sen. Norm Coleman's, R-Minn., campaign are threatening a new lawsuit to prevent the state from certifying election results that would make Al Franken the winner.
  • Could Franken be seated before his victory is certified? The state's other senator, Democrat Amy Klobuchar, is working on it.
  • While the race for the RNC chairmanship heats up, committee members have called for an unprecedented special meeting, working outside the dictates of the national party's leadership.
  • It looks like former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is moving closer to launching a Senate campaign.
