Recount could end by Dec. 14
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie hopes to have a governor's race recount wrapped up by mid-December.
A timeline from his office shows Dec. 14 as the date the board could certify a new governor. However, the losing candidate could take the election to court, where more months could pass before a governor is named.
Democrat Mark Dayton leads Republican Tom Emmer by less than 9,000 votes, within the margin that would require a recount.
