It looks like it has been a rocky senate campaign. Minneapolis Star-Tribune now reports Franken(D) within 4 points of Coleman(R). Independence Party candidateDean Barkley is at a steady 13%.

Both Republican and DFL primaries were held on September 9. Coleman won his party nomination with 91% of the vote. Franken only won his nomination with 65% of the vote. Coleman has been trying to scoop up the remainder of the democratic voters, but has not yet been able to get a commanding lead with this strategy. Possibly because there were actually more ballots cast for Franken (164,136) than for Coleman (130,973).
