Al Franken’s lead over Sen. Norm Coleman is shrinking in the hand recount of Minnesota’s Senate election, the Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting.

First Coleman had a nearly 1,000-vote lead, then it narrowed to a few hundred. Then Franken took the lead, and now that is narrowing.


The election was held more than a month and a half ago, and I’ve gotta tell you, this is the slowest horse race I have ever seen.
