The hand recount of Minnesota Senate ballots is in its final week, but the results are likely to be inconclusive.
The declaration of a winner will be on hold until thousands of disputed ballots are sorted out.
By Friday, all of the state's 87 counties should be done with their collective review of 2.9 million ballots. A five-member board will gather beginning Dec. 16 to rule on ballot challenges made by Republican Sen. Norm Coleman and Democratic challenger Al Franken.
As of Monday night, Coleman was up 344 votes when Nov. 4 and recounted numbers from precincts are put side by side. About 91 percent of the ballots have gotten a second look.
While Coleman has a cushion, it's hard to say with certainty how big it is. That's because the almost six-thousand combined challenges have skewed each candidate's running total.

No, it’s not over until Harry Reid, NV liberal, says it’s over. And NV is not “conservative”.
It’s over for Franken, he just doesn’t get it.
Please tell me there is still justice in the world!!!!!!!
Al.. could you please make sure to drive your koolaid burning car back to Minnesota from Washington, those planes are too much pollution. Make sure you polish up Coleman’s seat before you leave.
Just a bunch of thieves.
I see on Drudge that Frankenstein is asking the Senate to intervene. What a dick!
The only justice in this world is the justice you take for yourself. Anybody who relies on cops, lawyers, judges, and juries for "justice" is a fool. It's nice if "the system" stumbles into justice by accident, but to rely on that happening is ridiculous. There is simply way too much corruption.
So often I have heard about ‘going to hell in hand basket’, now I think we have.
Franken Strategy: Recount, challenge, sue, repeat.
I can’t tell you how much this warms my heart that Stuart Smalley is going down. So long sucker.
Should Franken lose the recount, this will be the only time he did anything funny.
A rare recount (almost-a-victory) for repubbies.
Even justice taken for oneself is not usually just. The problem is that mankind is involved, and there is some measure of corruption mixed into every molecule of our being.
What about when he and his liberal friends decided to compete in the talk radio business?
I actually saw him on election day. He is short with a huge head... He'll probably cry himself to sleep tonight on his big fluffy pillow.
Nobody was listening to Franken’s radio show.
What is it with tiny men and the importance complex? Franken, klooney et al......
Can’t Senate Democrats simply “seat” Franken until all this is settled? That would give them the 60 votes they need to push through anything they like.
Admit you lost, Franken.
