Most observers agree that Al Franken’s (DFL-Minn.) election to the U.S. Senate is not a matter of if, but when. Not so for newly minted Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, though. Here’s a statement he released this morning:

“I proudly stand in support of Senator Norm Coleman’s pursuit to see that Minnesota’s voters are enfranchised by having their ballots counted. If voters do not have confidence in elections, then they will not have confidence in their elected leaders. That is why the judges’ review of thousands of additional ballots in Minnesota is critical to the democratic process. The Republican National Committee remains committed to Norm Coleman’s campaign and confident that when the recount contest is complete, he will be re-elected to the U.S. Senate.”

Meanwhile, Franken’s lawyers are arguing before the Minnesota Supreme Court today that Franken should be issued a temporary election certificate so that Minnesota can have its full representation in the Senate while Coleman’s election contest is resolved (it could take a while). Watch the hearing live:
