Kriesel leads, but recount possible in razor-thin 57A race
A recount could be coming in the race for state house District 57A, with Republican John Kriesel just 54 votes ahead of DFLer Jen Peterson as of early Wednesday morning.
With 15 of the district's 16 precincts reporting, Kriesel, the former Minnesota National Guardsman, led Peterson, a Cottage Grove City Council member, 6,467 votes to 6,413 in the race to replace retiring DFL Rep. Karla Bigham, of Cottage Grove.
