Biden comments on recount

Al Franken and V.P. Joe Biden met privately in D.C. today. After the meeting Biden’s office issued this statement:

“The election process and recount in Minnesota have lived up to the state’s reputation for organization, transparency, and bipartisanship. The officials have been meticulous and every ruling has been unanimous. While Sen. Amy Klobuchar is one of the hardest working members of the United States Senate, Minnesotans deserve their full representation. Once the Minnesota Supreme Court has issued its final ruling in this case, the President and I look forward to working with Mr. Franken on building an economy for the 21st century.”

And Franken issued this:

“I deeply appreciate the administration’s ongoing support and the opportunity to meet with Vice President Biden today. Minnesotans are eager to see Congress make progress on the administration’s agenda – and I’m eager to do my part in that effort. From investments in alternative energy to the expansion of high-speed rail to the Twin Cities, we have a lot to do to help Minnesota’s working families, and I was pleased to discuss these important issues with the Vice President.”
