There’s about to be a Norm Coleman sighting. He’s scheduled a 3 p.m. “media availability” at the Capitol today. It’s unclear whether he’ll answer any questions. Yesterday, his opponent — Al Franken — refused to answer any questions when he made his first public appearance since the recount started.
MPR will carry the event live on its news and information service stations.
FYI, the Franken campaign has ignored the questions I’ve sent over numerous times.
