[PDI] news and an opportunity to support Al Franken in Chicago

Subject: I'm still winning but it's not over--stand with me in Chicago, Monday 3/16 at Sidetrack!

After five weeks, Norm Coleman rested his case in his lawsuit to overturn our victory in the Minnesota Senate race. Coleman has had a fair opportunity to present his argument, but he has failed to do so. Now it's our turn, but even before we begin, we know one thing: the Coleman campaign didn't present a winning case. In fact, we picked up 33 net votes during Coleman's case! We'll pick up more when we present ours.

Meanwhile, national editorials have called on Coleman to accept that he lost this election, fair and square.

I still need your help to take my seat in the Senate.

Coleman's legal team has made it clear that if they don't get this court to overturn our victory, they'll appeal until they find one that will. I've got a great legal team working day and night on the trial but I need your help to continue standing strong.

Please join me for cocktails and conversation on Monday, March 16th at 5:30pm, at Sidetrack, 3349 N. Halsted to support the Franken Recount Fund. See the invite below or click here for info.

With your support I'll get to Washington where my vote as the 59th Democratic Senator is crucial. Thanks and I'll see you there!

Al Franken

$100 ia little pricey for me but maybe you folks might be interested. And it is good to know (my opinion at least) That Al?Franken will be in the Senate with his fresh and new ideas.

Feel free to pass along the email.
