MN Board Hearing Arguments Now
The Minnesota State Canvassing Board has approved Coleman's lead of 206 votes (though this figure can still be modifed after audit records are examined) and is now hearing arguments from the candidates. The Franken campaign is arguing that the results from many counties cannot be certified because officials did not personally review the paper tapes that are printed out of each voting machine for results, but instead relied on results compiled by state computer systems. The Franken campaign denies charges from Coleman that by making this argument the campaign is trying to delay or stop the recount.
