Recall Drags on in Minnesota Senate Race

Hosted by

About three million votes were cast in last month's US Senate race in Minnesota, and the margin between the candidates is about 200, a difference of a few thousandths of one percent, making it appear impossible to determine a winner, even after a recount. Republican Senator Norm Coleman was considered vulnerable, and Democrat Al Franken gave up his job as a TV comedian to take Coleman on. What's happened might be funny if a US Senate stake wasn't at stake.  Larry Jacobs is director of the Center for the Study of Politics and Governance at the University of Minnesota.
