ST. PAUL, MINN. (AP) - The two candidates locked in a lengthy fight over a Senate seat from Minnesota are getting their own bobblehead doll.

That’s just one bobblehead doll, but with two faces _ one for Republican Norm Coleman and one for Democrat Al Franken.

It’s more than four months since Election Day and a Minnesota court is still considering Coleman’s lawsuit to overturn the results of a recount that gave a narrow lead to Franken.

So now the marketing team for the St. Paul Saints independent league baseball team is giving fans a symbol of the political contest.

The dolls will go to the first 2,500 fans at the Saints’ May 23 home game against a team from South Dakota _ the Sioux Falls Canaries.

While the doll’s faces are Coleman and Franken, each doll will be dressed like Count von Count from “Sesame Street.” It’s called the “Re-Count.”
