Cornyn Says Coleman Challenge Could Take Years

Original Link:

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) is threatening "World War III" if Democrats try to seat Al Franken (D) in the Senate before Norm Coleman (R) can pursue his case through the federal courts, Politico reports.

Cornyn, the head of the NRSC, takes this position even as he "acknowledges that a federal challenge to November's elections could take 'years; to resolve. But he's adamant that Coleman deserves that chance -- even if it means Minnesota is short a senator for the duration."

A three-judge panel is expected to rule any day now on legal challenges to the November election.
