RNC Chair Accuses Dems of ‘Stealing’ Minn. Senate Seat
Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan — who is currently campaigning to keep his job — is accusing Senate Democrats of trying to steal the U.S. Senate election in Minnesota, and he expressed confidence that incumbent Republican Norm Coleman will emerge victorious.
Here’s his press release in full:
“Minnesota law reads that an election contest – not Harry Reid – should decide the winner of a contested election. The efforts of Al Franken, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer to steal this election and seat Al Franken despite not having an election certificate are unprecedented.
“When elections are being decided by double-counted votes and double standards in the treatment of absentee ballots, there must be a remedy to get an accurate and valid vote total – that remedy is an election contest. That is the law of Minnesota enacted by the people of Minnesota. The people of Minnesota deserve to see their laws followed.
“I am confident that if the law is followed, Norm Coleman will be taking his rightful seat in the U.S. Senate.”
Unfortunately for the RNC, no one outside of the GOP appears to agree.
