Franken-Coleman recount: Board recesses for the weekend

The State Canvassing Board ended its work for today.

“We’re not done, we’re a long ways from done,” said Secretary of State Mark Ritchie. The board will convene at 9.a.m. Monday to address some previously withdrawn ballots.

Unofficially, some news media have Al Franken “ahead” in the recount by 239 votes. BUT some other challenged votes will be reviewed Monday.

Also, there are about 1,600 or so absentee ballots to be judged.
