MN Senate Race: 12/5 Update
WIth the recount nearly completed, Franken now trails Coleman in the administrative recount by 251 votes. Coleman's campaign has challenged 114 more votes than the Franken campaign according to the Star Tribune recount page here. About 133 votes are missing from a Minneapolis precinct. A search is being conducted for them now. See the latest report here. It's not clear yet whether any of the rejected absentee ballots have been found to be valid and if they will be included in an amended initial count or the recount. Resolution of this race appears far from over.
