Reid Weighs In On Franken Recount

Harry Reid has weighed in for the first time on the Minnesota recount, insisting that the canvassing board go one step further in counting absentee ballots in question.

“Today's decision by the Minnesota Canvassing Board not to count certain absentee ballots is cause for great concern," Reid said in a Wednesday afternoon statement. "As the process moves forward, Minnesota authorities must ensure that no voter is disenfranchised. A citizen's right to have his or her vote counted is fundamental in our democracy."
