Quick Update on the Franken Race

Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

After what they said was an exhaustive search of the nooks and crannies of their Northeast warehouse, Minneapolis officials announced Monday that they were abandoning their hunt for 133 missing ballots in the U.S. Senate recount. As they called things off, Republican Sen. Norm Coleman’s campaign raised concerns that “political spin” by DFLer Al Franken’s camp might be affecting whether the ballots ultimately will be countedThe Minneapolis precinct is heavily Democratic, and calculations indicate that leaving the missing ballots out of the count could cost Franken a net of 46 votes.
