MN Senate race: County error gave Franken 100 fewer votes than he received
Coleman now leads Franken by 236 votes. One precinct had accidentally reported 24 votes for Franken instead of 124. It is typical to discover errors like this between the unofficial count and the official count. The vote difference is now .011%, well below the .5% margin that triggers an automatic recount.
