Franken, former SNL star, wins U.S. Senate seat

Several media outlets including USA Today are reporting that Democratic activist and comedian Al Franken has won the highly contested U.S. Senate race in Minnesota over incumbent Norm Coleman.
The appeals have stretched on since the November election, in which Coleman was originally in the lead.
The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that Franken should be seated, according to USA Today. See story at:

Franken's victory gives Democrats 60 members in the Senate and is crucial to Democrats and their agenda.
Coleman might be the first sitting senator to lose to a Saturday Night Live star.
