Al Franken's campaign released a statement in response to the state Canvassing Board's decision to count the 133 ballots that went missing after they were originally counted on election night. No word yet from Norm Coleman's campaign.

Communications Director Andy Barr: 
"We are pleased that the state canvassing board has affirmed what we always believed to be true: Minnesota is not a state that disenfranchises its voters. Today's decisions represent positive and productive steps towards ensuring that this election is decided fairly and accurately, as well as a complete rejection of the Coleman campaign's effort to throw out lawful votes from Minnesotans."
