Republican Congressman John Kline told reporters this morning that he wants Republican Norm Coleman to continue his legal fight in Minnesota’s long-running U.S. Senate race “until we can get as much confidence in Minnesota and in the nation that the results are accurate.”
Kline also said he’d like to see the MN Supreme Court say “There isn’t a winner here. We cannot declare a winner” and said he’d like to see Minnesota have runoff elections.
