Florida GOP Gov. Rick Scott’s Senate campaign should avoid getting "out-lawyered" in the recount of his too-close-to-call race against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, Minnesota’s former GOP Sen. Norm Coleman warns.

In remarks to "Fox & Friends" on Saturday, Coleman recalled how he lost re-election in 2008 to Democrat Al Franken after an eight-month recount.

"In the end, you can get out-lawyered," said Coleman, who lost his race after a recount put him behind Franken by 312 votes.

Franken's legal team in the 2008 election included Marc Elias, Coleman noted.

"He did my race and he did Dino Rossi's race," he said, referring to a 2004 Washington gubernatorial election in which the Republican lost to Democrat Christine Gregoire in a recount after holding the lead on election night.
