Earlier in the day, MPR reported that the campaigns for GOP Sen. Norm Coleman and Democrat Al Franken are planning to raise $1 million or more for their recount funds.
The New York Times is reporting that Coleman is getting some help from former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The one time presidential candidate (who may be another time presidential candidate) directed $5,000 from his PAC to Coleman's recount fund.
The feature examines statements made by Minnesota politicians and checks them for accuracy. Based on data analysis, document reviews and interviews with non-partisan analysts, statements are rated either true, false or inconclusive. PoliGraph is a collaboration between Minnesota Public Radio News and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
