Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., told reporters no one's asserting there's been any ``fraud or wrongdoing'' in the Minnesota election. Reid later posed with Franken for photos just off the Senate floor.
Coleman's lawyers are challenging the results of the election and the re-count. The trial is set to begin in state district court on Monday. A three-judge panel that will hear the case is considering Franken's argument to dismiss it.
Franken finished the re-count ahead by 225 votes.
A spokesman for Coleman says Reid and Franken would ``ignore the
will of Minnesota voters'' if they try to seat Franken before the election is fully resolved.
