Franken takes lead in ballot recount
ST. PAUL - Al Franken took a lead of more than 300 votes today as a three-judge panel counted U.S. Senate absentee ballots that had not been counted before.
The Democrat's lead over Norm Coleman grew to 312 votes with the count in what could be the final day of Minnesota's U.S. Senate trial. Today's activity, the only counting done in court, is receiving more attention than during seven weeks of testimony, with a crowd packing a courtroom generally used by the state Supreme Court.
