Coleman prioritizes contest issues and Republican voters file new lawsuit over duplicates
The Coleman campaign has filed a proposed schedule for how to approach the issues in the election contest. The campaign would like to first address the absentee ballots that it alleges were wrongly excluded from the canvass. The proposal suggests that each new issue will only need to be reached in the trial if the preceding issue did not yield enough votes for Coleman to be declared the winner. See the proposed schedule here and the Star Tribune coverage here. Republican voters are filing a new lawsuit over the alleged double-counting of original and duplicate ballots.
