Franken Campaign Claims to Lead by 22 Votes

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

From HuffPo:

Aides to Al Franken's senatorial campaign announced on Wednesday that, for the first time since the recount began, they were actually ahead of Sen. Norm Coleman.

Speaking on a conference call with reporters, Franken's chief counsel Marc Elias said the campaign's own internal count showed them up 22 votes, a jump from the 13 vote deficit that they faced on Tuesday.

"We have approximately 138,000 ballots left to count," said Elias. "94.3 percent of the state has now been counted... Obviously that number is going to change, but we are pleased thus far with how things are going."

The campaign website has a lot of information on where the recounts stands.
