Democrats and Republicans are anxiously awaiting the results of two unresolved Senate races. In Georgia, there's a runoff election next month, and in Minnesota, a statewide recount begins Wednesday.

Democrats and Republicans are still anxiously awaiting the results of two unresolved Senate races.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

MONTAGNE: And in Minnesota, a statewide recount begins today in that state's tight Senate race.

INSKEEP: Right now, Republican incumbent Norm Coleman leads Democratic candidate Al Franken by 215 votes.
