Franken vote certified, but court to decide
ST. PAUL - Norm Coleman declared victory the morning after the Nov. 4 election.
Al Franken claimed victory Monday, when a statewide U.S. Senate recount ended.
Judges, however, likely will decide Minnesota's next senator.
A state election board on Monday certified results of the two-month recount that gave Democrat Franken a 225-vote advantage over Coleman.
