Minnesota's Senate race has no immediate end in sight

The Takeaway
The World
As the rest of the U.S. moves on from the 2008 election, Minnesota is still trying to determine who will represent the state in the U.S. Senate. After leading by 215 votes, Republican incumbent Norm Coleman is still in danger of losing his seat to Democrat challenger Al Franken despite Franken's recent set back over absentee ballots. Now the U.S. Senate's Majority Leader has stepped into the fray increasing speculation that the Senate may take the rare move of getting involved in a state election. Today The Takeaway talks to Tom Scheck of Minnesota Public Radio as the manual re-count of more than two-point-nine million votes heads into its final days.
