Al Shows "Franken Sense" in Minnesota Senate Race
Senate hopeful Al Franken has agreed to withdraw several hundred ballots his campaign conested according to his communications director Andy Barr.
Al Franken's Senate campaign announced Sunday that it would have fewer than 500 challenges remaining for the state canvassing board to consider when it meets on Tuesday.
The state Canvassing Board -- which is overseeing the Senate recount in the race between Franken and Republican incumbent Norm Coleman -- issued an urgent plea last week for both campaigns to cut down their number of contested ballots.
"In making this pledge, we are taking to heart the good advice of the canvassing board and the best interests of Minnesotans who want to see this process move forward efficiently," Franken communications director Andy Barr said in a statement.
