Franken setback

Posted By on Wed, Nov 26, 2008 at 1:58 PM

The recount of votes in the Al Franken-Norm Coleman race for Senate in Minnesota grinds on, with no new clarity in view. A state canvassing board has rejected Franken's request to include several thousand rejected absentee ballots, though several indicated they believed a number were improperly rejected. This isn't the final word on the matter, however. Coleman has an edge of a couple of hundred votes, but with more than 3,000 ballots in a pile for review (a majority there because of Coleman challenges) it's impossible to say what the "real" vote is.
