    Republican Coleman ends fight for Senate seat
    Tue Jun 30, 2009 4:19pm EDT

    MINNESOTA (Reuters) - Republican Norm Coleman on Tuesday conceded the tightly contested race for Minnesota's U.S. Senate seat and congratulated Democrat Al Franken after a protracted recount.

    Coleman, who held the seat for one term, said he would abide by the decision of the Minnesota Supreme Court which turned down Coleman's appeal that thousands more absentee ballots be counted.
