Franken looks to protect his vote margin
ST. PAUL - Now it is Al Franken's turn.
Franken's campaign starts its case in Norm Coleman's U.S. Senate election lawsuit today. The Democrat hopes to build on his slim, 225-vote margin and become Minnesota's next senator.
Coleman's attorneys wrapped up their case Monday after spending 26 days trying to show a three-judge panel that the election and that as many as 2,500 Minnesota voters did not have their valid votes counted in the Nov. 4 election.
