The folks at the liberal group Americans United for Change say they're running a TV ad in Minnesota to put pressure on GOP. Gov. Tim Pawlenty to certify Al Franken (D) if he remains ahead of Norm Coleman (R) after the Minnesota Supreme Court considers the case.
"Most Minnesotans -- including Republicans -- believe that once the Minnesota Supreme Court rules, it will be time for Gov. Pawlenty to do his legal duty and certify Al Franken as our senator," the ad goes. "But the national Republican donors don't want Minnesota to have its rightful representation in the Senate... Call Gov. Pawlenty... Ask him to put Minnesota's interest ahead of political ambition."
