MN Senate race - withdrawn challenges will be allocated today
The challenges withdrawn by both campaigns will be allocated today. A draft list of these allocations has Franken ahead unofficially by 48 votes. Some decisions may be challenged today at the board's meeting. That meeting begins at 9 a.m. See the latest from the Star Tribune here. At 2 p.m. CT today, the Minnesota Supreme Court will hear oral argument over the original/duplicates issue. The Coleman campaign believes some ballots have been counted twice when originals and their machine-readable duplicates have accidentally come uncoupled.
