Court hears absentee challenge
ST. PAUL -- Sen. Norm Coleman's campaign told the state Supreme Court this afternoon that disputed absentee ballots should not be counted in Minnesota's U.S. Senate race.
However, if the ballots are counted, Coleman's attorney said, more specific guidelines should be established so that every county counts them the same.
Justices did not say how soon they would make a decision, but it is expected within a day or two.
