At the conclusion of the recount, the MN SECSTATE office shows Coleman with 687 vote margin compared to the 710 margin after election day. Once disputed precincts are included projections range from a Coleman 215 vote lead (Star Tribune) to a 4 vote Franken lead (Franken campaign).
Outstanding issues that challenge Coleman's lead:
- 133 unaccounted Minneapolis ballots
- 6,665 challenged ballots by the 2 campaigns
- 1,000 absentee ballots that the Franken campaign claims were inappropriately rejected
The saga continues.
