Downballot: Another blow for Norm

MINNESOTA: "It wasn't just Norm Coleman's list of ballots that was shrinking Wednesday. It was also his witness list," the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Pamela Howell, a Republican election judge in Minneapolis who Coleman had hoped would bolster his case that some votes were counted twice, had her testimony stricken after judges learned that Coleman's lawyers hadn't shared her written statement with Al Franken's legal team." Coleman attorney Ben "Ginsberg said he couldn't believe the message of inconsistent standards wasn't getting through to the judges."
