Al Franken A Step Closer To MN Senator Al Franken

Norm Coleman's lawyers today rested their case in the Minnesota U.S. Senate recount trial between Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Coleman. Franken holds a 225-vote lead certified during the recount, and has gained some votes during the trial that the three-judge panel ruled should be counted.

Franken's attorneys' have been reluctant to speculate on how long they will need to present their case, but it's not expected to be as long as the five-week Coleman case. At a party fundraiser Saturday, Franken said that he expected the trial to last for another two to three weeks.

Franken gave his first national media interview since November to Air America's Mark Green.
