Franken won't waive recount

The Democrat said Thursday he will not waive a recount in Minnesota's U.S. Senate contest, pointing to a narrowing margin between himself and Republican Sen. Norm Coleman as initial results are reviewed.

A day earlier, Coleman claimed victory, expressed confidence in the election system and noted his opponent could forego the state-mandated -- and funded -- recount to save taxpayer money.
