DELANO, Minn. -- Tom Emmer left the Minnesota governor's race at home, surrounded by family and leaving open the option of running for office again.


Emmer stood outside his Delano home in a sport coat, without gloves, this morning and said he would not take the election to court, adding that everyone needs to support Democrat Mark Dayton as he prepared to take office Jan. 3.

He was upbeat and frequently laughed as he read a statement and answered reporters' questions.
