Democrat Al Franken’s campaign wants a list of the rejected absentee ballots in Ramsey County. The campaign filed a lawsuit in Ramsey County District Court asking for the names.
Meanwhile, GOP Sen. Norm Coleman has reportedly dropped his bid to be the chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
A judge also threw out Coleman’s complaint against Franken.
