Franken trails Coleman by 216 votes, so the Dems are doing what they always do: send Soros to the rescue.
And Al Gore, too.
Left-wing billionaire financier George Soros is using his financial muscle at a Manhattan fund-raiser tonight to help Al Franken win a recount in Minnesota’s Senate election.
Soros – the hedge-fund honcho and sugar daddy of the Democratic Party – will host a soirée for Franken at his Carnegie Hill digs to help cover the candidate’s costs to monitor the statewide recount.
The special guest: Al Gore, who knows a thing or two about recounts.
At last count, Franken trails GOP incumbent Norm Coleman by just 216 votes out of 2.9 million cast. Minnesota yesterday initiated a hand recount that is not expected to be completed until mid-December.
Gonna be a long few weeks. Don’t expect much real news until the recount is finished.
Well, I do expect a lot of Soros’s money coming to the rescue.
