Minnesota Senate race: Coleman up by 169 votes
Both candidates gained more votes today as recounting continued. Franken now trails by 169 votes according to this morning’s reports out of St. Louis and Ramsey counties. See the Star Tribune’s report here. There are 107 recount sites (counties and cities) and they are required to finish their work and report by Dec. 5 to the state canvassing board. The board will accept those reports and rule on disputed ballots beginning Dec. 16. Following its conclusions, litigation could postpone the final conclusion into 2009. See today’s AP report on the recount here.
