There’s Hope for Franken Yet
Posted on Dec 19, 2008
BradBlog has the latest from the endless recount battle in Minnesota, where Al Franken currently is trailing by only two votes. Results are day-to-day, but the Star-Tribune is predicting Franken will win out by fewer than 100 votes.
As thousands of challenged ballots from both Sen. Norm Coleman (R) and challenger Al Franken (D) are being decided by the bi-partisan state canvassing board in the U.S. Senate race in MN, AP says it’s currently a 2 vote race in favor of Franken.
That said, as all of the challenged ballots are finally counted over the next several days (and weeks), the lead could go back and forth a bit each night. The Star-Tribune, which puts today’s margin at 5 votes in favor of Coleman, currently projects that Franken will ultimately win by 89 votes.
For two guys who don’t like each other much, Senate rivals Norm Coleman, left, and Al Franken spend a lot of time in the news together.
