Franken leads; ballots remain
ST. PAUL - A new leader emerged Friday in Minnesota's U.S. Senate race, but new electoral wrinkles kept the outcome unknown. Democrat Al Franken pulled ahead of Sen. Norm Coleman for the first time after the state Canvassing Board completed a four-day review of roughly 1,500 ballots...

Franken leads, at least today
ST. PAUL - Al Franken took a lead today on what is supposed to be the final day the state Canvassing Board considers challenged U.S. Senate ballots. But with thousands of other ballots still not counted, the lead could be short lived. Franken entered today with a single-digit deficit...

Senate race loses some significance
ST. PAUL - Al Franken no longer can be considered the potential 60th vote. A runoff election Tuesday in Georgia left Minnesota with the only unresolved U.S. Senate race this year - and Franken hoping to be Senate Democrat's 59th vote, not the critical 60th that would allow them to...
