Recount trial: Panel denies reconsideration of earlier decision
Too bad, so sad.
More from the Pioneer Press:
That (decision) barred Coleman, who trails Democrat Al Franken by 225 votes, from bringing about 1,000 rejected ballots to the trial.As Coleman's hopes of winning continue to dwindle, Republicans continue to find ways to prop up his campaign with more donations. Winning is expensive after all.
The team argued the decision exacerbated existing "inconsistencies and inequities."
According to Politico:
The National Republican Senatorial Committee last week held a fundraiser to help Coleman's court challenge... And since then, NRSC Chairman John Cornyn of Texas and Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee each donated $10,000, while Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) has contributed another $5,000, according to a person familiar with the contributions.
The fundraising is a sign that Republicans are willing to keep the battle going for as long as possible in order to keep Franken from being the 59th Democrat in a chamber where 60 votes are needed to pass controversial pieces of legislation.
