Minnesota Supreme Court Hears Coleman-Franken Contest « The Washington Independent
Today was a big day in the seemingly never-ending saga that is the 2008 Minnesota Senate race. The Minnesota Supreme Court heard former GOP Sen. Norm Coleman’s challenge of a previous decision by a three-judge panel that awarded the election to Democratic challenger Al Franken. The Coleman camp is seeking the inclusion of 4,400 previously discounted absentee ballots, arguing that Franken-friendly parts of the state applied more lenient standards in accepting ballots.
The Minnesota Independent’s Paul Demko has details from today’s proceedings.
