Dayton-Emmer race could be headed to recount
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota voters may have handed elections officials another recount Tuesday in a governor's race that remained undecided early today.
Democrat Mark Dayton's lead over Republican Tom Emmer with most precincts counted was less than 9,000 votes, which if it stands would mean a recount.
The Associated Press reported Dayton had 912,796 votes to Emmer's 903,857. The secretary of state's Web site had fewer votes counted, but the margin was about the same.
