Incumbent Norm Coleman's defeat in the drawn-out Minnesota Senate race leaves US Republicans without a Jewish senator for the first time in half a century.

Coleman conceded his long-contested race with Democratic challenger Al Franken on Tuesday after the Minnesota Supreme Court rejected Coleman's legal challenge.
