Franken, Coleman on same bobblehead

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The two candidates locked in a lengthy fight over a Senate seat from Minnesota are getting their own bobblehead doll.

That’s just one bobblehead doll, but with two faces – one for Republican Norm Coleman and one for Democrat Al Franken.

It’s more than four months since Election Day and a Minnesota court is still considering Coleman’s lawsuit to overturn the results of a recount that gave a narrow lead to Franken.

So now the marketing team for the St. Paul Saints independent league baseball team is giving fans a symbol of the political contest.

The dolls will go to the first 2,500 fans at the Saints’ May 23 home game against a team from South Dakota – the Sioux Falls Canaries.

While the doll’s faces are Coleman and Franken, each doll will be dressed like Count von Count from “Sesame Street.” It’s called the “Re-Count.”

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
