About My Minnesota Fears


A friend and GOP politico close to the recount says: “Nobody knows what the numbers mean at this point. I believe Coleman will be ahead once all the challenged ballots are reviewed. The big issue remains the ‘improperly rejected’ absentee ballots. On Thursday the state supreme court said they should count but that there must be a single statewide standard, something the Coleman campaign had sued to get.”

He adds: “Also, so you’re aware, and can help make others aware, Thursday the Canvassing Board went through challenges that Coleman had pulled back but the Sec of State didn’t remove. Friday they will continue with that process, which gives Franken a seeming advantage, though very temporary. The Board has yet to examine similar withdrawn challenges by Franken which will add to Coleman’s total.”
