In the two days since a three judge state panel handed Norm Coleman a major setback in his election contest against entertainer Al Franken (D) the former Minnesota senator has made clear that he has no plans to declare defeat anytime soon.
"Well, clearly it wasn't over," Coleman said during a radio interview yesterday, adding: "Every vote has to now be counted, and as I repeat again and again, counted with a uniform standard."
Coleman's lead lawyer, Ben Ginsberg, has dismissed the court's ruling on Tuesday as an "April Fool's day" decision. The ruling "gives us no choice but to appeal that order to Minnesota Supreme Court," added Ginsberg.

If he decides to concede, he should announce a time to make a statement and RAISE HELL!
No, Coleman should not concede.
That’s *Doctor* No, to you, sir....:))
never. He should also be forming his own militia.
Don’t ever concede, force it to the state supreme court, and when Franken “wins” claim he’s an illegitimate senator because he was “selected, not elected”. And keep doing it for the next six years.
A fraud in broad daylight - so many elections are being stolen by the left we must be on the verge of the equivalent of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution in Russia - we all know how that turned out!
I think we’re all in a bit of trouble, what do you think?
Certainly not! There are so many things wrong with this picture that a concession his part would do nothing more than encourage the other side to pull those tricks again and again.
It’s sad that as a country we’ve fallen to the level that we can’t even have an honest election.
He should concede when all the votes have been counted and it’s been determined, without fraud, that he is the loser.
See my post # 4
As long as he’s payin out of his campaigns pocket, no.
Statistically speaking, close elections should break 50-50 for either party after all the dust settles.
Although we did get the bif one (Florida, 2000), I would venture to guess that 80%+ of very close elections (less than .1% margin) go to the Democrats. The people who love the idea of performing a census using statistical sampling should know that this is prima facie evidence of rigged outcomes.
