Today the Minnesota canvassing board is set to certify the state’s election recount results – which found Al Franken victorious over incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman by 225 votes. A victory for sure for progressive and Council-endorsed Franken, but the race is not yet over.
According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, a seven day waiting period will follow before the election is complete. This process can be further delayed by any lawsuits, and Coleman has not yet ruled them out. Additionally, the Coleman campaign already has a petition before the Minnesota Supreme Court to count 650 rejected ballots.
We’ll continue to keep you updated with these race results, but you can also find the latest information on the website for the Star Tribune.
