Editorial: Franken rises to the top
Remember when Norm Coleman declared victory immediately following Election Day, and then publicly rebuked the Al Franken campaign for demanding a recount already mandated by Minnesota law? And remember when Coleman said that if he had been in Franken's position, he would not have...

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...

Recount wraps up
ST. PAUL -- Minnesotans are out of luck if they thought completion of the historic U.S. Senate recount would bring about a tidy end to the race. Most election officials on Friday breathed a sigh of relief as nearly all of the 2.9 million ballots had been recounted by hand, giving...
