Minnesota Madness, Morning Edition

Norm Coleman’s lead in the recount has now dwindled to a mere five votes as the state Canvassing Board has been rejecting most of Coleman’s challenges to Franken ballots and those ballots have been added to Franken’s vote tally. (When a ballot is being challenged, it’s removed from the stack and considered a non-vote until the Board makes a ruling.) However, there are still thousands of ballots that the campaigns initially challenged, but then withdrew their objection to, and these have not yet been added to the totals. The Coleman campaign thinks that once they are, his numbers will get a boost. 

In another important development likely to yield votes for Franken, the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that improperly rejected absentee ballots would have to be counted, though they don’t have to be counted immediately, and the campaigns still have to establish a standard for which ballots will be included. 

Coleman’s move to make sure duplicate ballots do not get double counted is still outstanding.

The bottom line is that at the moment, it appears that Franken has the momentum, but the race is so close, and there are so many uncertainties, that it’s hard to say.
