"We are more confident than ever that Al Franken will be the winner of this election," reads a posting on the Democrat's Web site.
Only not so fast, counters the Coleman campaign. "This process is still a long way form being complete," the incumbent said in a statement. The state canvassing board is set to complete its work counting votes today, Bloomberg.com reports.
The Coleman camp insists 100 votes have been double-counted, and has announced that it intends to go to the state Supreme Court to lodge a protest.
