As RADAR has reported, Democrat Al Franken and Republican Norm Coleman have been locked in a 2 month-old battle for the Minnesota Senate race. And it now looks like Franken is finally the victor with a lead of 225 votes.

"We are confident since there are no ballots left to count the final margin will stand with Al Franken having won the election by 225 votes," said Marc Elias, Franken's attorney.
