Al Franken headed to Washington

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Calm down, he hasn't won yet:

The hotly-contested — and yet to be decided — Minnesota Senate race may be headed for a recount, but Democrat Al Franken is already headed for Washington.

Franken will head to Washington, D.C. Wednesday to hold meetings with Senate leadership. That's the same day the state-mandated recount — which will determine whether Franken or incumbent Republican Sen. Norm Coleman will emerge victorious — is set to begin.

Franken spokeswoman Colleen Murray said the former comedian-turned-Senate candidate will meet with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and others in lieu of attending the Senate's freshman orientation since, Murray said, Franken thinks that would be "presumptuous." - CNN
