Franken takes lead, board rejects Coleman plea

As expected, Al Franken took his first lead in Minnesota’s U.S. Senate race but there are still hundreds, if not thousands of withdrawn challenges that need to be allocated.

Meanwhile, the state canvassing board rejected a plea by Norm Coleman’s attorney to look into an issue where Coleman’s campaign suggested double counting could have occurred. The board said it wasn’t the role of the canvassing board to look into the matter.
