Coleman, Franken Senate Race Faces Recount
The Senate race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken faces a recount, Minnesota officials announced, as more issues have started to surface in the closest Senate race in history.
One issue is the emergence of 100 votes for Franken in the Iron Range, which were filed between election night and the following Thursday, when the votes were recounted, the Star Tribune reported. A time stamp for several Coleman votes is Nov. 2, which was two days before the election.
Secretary of State Mark Ritchie has started working with both candidates on a timeline for resolving the recount quickly, though it may take up to six weeks, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.
