It looks increasingly like, no, he will not. 22 Democrat Senators have called on him to leave. As well as the head of the DNC. That doesn’t leave too many outs.
In a succession of statements Wednesday, more than 20 of Franken’s Senate Democratic colleagues — about half of the party’s caucus — pushed for him to step down. Among them were Dick Durbin of Illinois and Patty Murray of Washington, the second and third-ranking Senate Democrats, respectively.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez also tweeted that Franken should step down.
In addition, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he does not believe Franken “can effectively serve the people of Minnesota in the U.S. Senate any longer.” Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, also said Franken should resign.
In the statements, the senators used words like “egregious” and “unacceptable” to describe Franken’s behavior.
