Democrat Al Franken withdrew 633 challenges to ballots in the U.S. Senate race, and an attorney for Republican Norm Coleman said he might follow suit. The canvassing board is to meet Dec. 16 to begin examining contested ballots. Coleman defeated Franken in the election by 215 votes, a margin so small that it triggered an automatic recount.

Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty said he wouldn't run for a third term, even though the state doesn't have term limits. Pawlenty, 48, said he'd impose them on himself. "Time marches on, and now it's time to give someone else a chance," he said. Pawlenty, whose term lasts 19 more months, also said he would follow the state Supreme Court's direction on whether to issue an election certificate in the disputed U.S. Senate race. Republican Norm Coleman, whose term expired in January, is contesting the recount that tipped the race to Democrat Al Franken by a few hundred votes.

A lawyer for Republican Norm Coleman, who is challenging Democrat Al Franken's 225-vote lead in the state's U.S. Senate election, said Coleman would probably lose in a three-judge court and appeal to the state's top court. A panel of state judges heard closing arguments March 13 over the counting of ballots in the Senate contest. "Our whole argument was that it was a constitutional argument, and it's an argument suitable for the Minnesota Supreme Court," Coleman attorney Joe Friedberg told radio station KFAN in Minneapolis.

A Minnesota court confirmed Monday that Democrat Al Franken won the most votes in his 2008 Senate race against Republican Norm Coleman, who immediately announced plans to appeal the decision. Coleman has 10 days to appeal to the state Supreme Court. Once the petition is filed, it could further delay the seating of Minnesota's second senator for weeks.

A three-judge panel Tuesday awarded Democrat challenger Al Franken more votes in his bid to become Minnesota's next senator, but it will take additional court action to decide the final result in what is already the longest-running recount in the state's history. The panel examined 351 ballots and added the result to previous counts, giving Franken a lead of 312 votes over Republican Norm Coleman. Franken began the day ahead by 225 votes of about 2.4 million cast in November.

Democrat Al Franken was quickly turned down Monday when he asked Minnesota's governor and secretary of state to issue an election certificate that would let him take office in the Senate. In letters the campaign sent to Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, Franken's lawyers argued that a seven-day waiting period for issuing the certificate after an election has passed and he should get the signed certificate.
