COLEMAN NOW AHEAD OF FRANKEN IN TIGHT MINNESOTA SENATE RACE

THIS DAMNED STORY KEEPS CHANGING. I posted the item below last night, and today it has changed - again. The Bench recommends a Google news search on "Al Franken" to keep up with the very latest on this story, which seems to change by the hour. IT AIN'T OVER YET: The Coleman-Franken contest for US Senate in Minnesota drags on. It's like the NYSE. Up, down, up, down. Norm Coleman was ahead of Al Franken, then Franken challenged and pulled ahead by some 200 votes (see Al Franken Stealing Election In Minnesota). Now, late tonight, comes word that Coleman has pulled ahead of Franken! Why? Because of a lot of hard work by attorneys for both sides in a drama that will be written about for years to come: Hundreds of lawyers from both parties have volunteered to help fight the continuing Minnesota Senate race, where Republican Sen. Norm Coleman now leads Democrat Al Franken by roughly 200 votes, of 2.9 million cast, after an initial count. The razor-thin margin will trigger an automatic recount. Full Story at WSJ...
