Senate Recount Continues

The Minnesota U.S. Senate recount continues, with 73 percent of precincts reporting, reports MPR.

The results so far show that Republican Sen. Norm Coleman is leading Democrat Al Franken by 167 votes, with more than a quarter of the precincts yet to be counted.

The number of challenged ballots has grown to 1,900 which outnumbers the margin between the two candidates.

Several Twin Cities sites have completed their recount and others are one pace to finish before Thanksgiving, according to the Pioneer Press.

The challenged ballots will head to the state canvassing board next month, which will do a final tally and declare a winner.
