Bobblehead doll for Minn's slow Senate race count

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - 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."
