MN Canvassing Board update
The canvassing board is meeting for the 4th day to dispose of the remaining Coleman challenges. There may only be just over 100 ballots left to review and the board is moving through them quickly. Franken is up by 190 votes among the reviewed challenges but the withdrawn challenges have not been officially adjudicated; the board will deal with these on Monday at 9 a.m. The board has not updated the running totals for each candidate declaring that it is not interested in the "horse race" and wants to focus on each ballot that comes before it. That has probably contributed to the disparity among news reports on the number of ballots left to review and the candidates' totals. See the latest from the Star Tribune here.
