From NBC's Mark Murray
While the Democratic National Committee and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee released statements last night congratulating Al Franken and ratcheting up the pressure for Norm Coleman to bow out, we haven't heard a peep from national Republicans.
Nothing yet from Michael Steele's RNC. Nothing from John Cornyn's NRSC. And we've yet to spot a post on yesterday's three-judge decision from prominent conservative blogs like Red State or National Review's The Corner.
The silence is pretty deafening...
*** UPDATE *** Just after we published, National Review's The Corner posted a quick update on Minnesota: "The three-judge panel's unanimous decision hands the Senate election to Al Franken (D), but Norm Coleman (R) will appeal to the state Supreme Court. Later today, his legal team will hold a conference call with reporters."
