Mark Nisley served as the team leader for Norm Coleman in Pine County. He says he think the county did a commendable job in the recount process.
Nisley says the Franken camp is sending one ballot to the canvassing board for review. Four ballots total were sent from Wednesday’s recount. Statewide, 221 votes were sent to the board. Nisley says fatigue played a factor in the recount, but says having over the course of two days meant fresh counters for Pine County.
Isanti County started their recount Thursday morning and Kanabec County will hold their recount, Friday.
