Harry Reid on Franken/Coleman recount
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid released a statement today in response to the state's Canvassing Board meeting today regarding the Senate recount. The Board rejected Franken's request to include rejected absentee ballots in the final count.
"Today's decision by the Minnesota Canvassing Board not to count certain absentee ballots is cause for great concern," Reid said in a Wednesday afternoon statement. "As the process moves forward, Minnesota authorities must ensure that no voter is disenfranchised. A citizen's right to have his or her vote counted is fundamental in our democracy."
