Skip to comments.Governorís race headed to recount (Minn.again)
Posted on 11/03/2010 4:58:48 PM PDT by FromLori
In a grimly familiar scene for Minnesota politics, the governors race between apparent winner Mark Dayton and Republican challenger Tom Emmer is headed to a recount.
With 100 percent of the states precincts reporting, Dayton leads Emmer by 8,854 votes. This number requires a mandatory recount under state law as it is within one-half of one percentage point.
GOP, DFL recount skirmishing begins; Pawlenty: I’ll stay in office till it’s over
When I went to the Soros SOS website, they cite the Franken victory as one of their accomplishments via electing the Minnesota SOS.
Does anyone know how Republicans did in the Secretary of State races?
A**hole SOROS again and his SOS project.
lets see, if I prognosticate correctly they will find 8,870 votes were somehow forgotten in the trunk of someones, car, church basement, of the polling machines ate them. Everyone of them will be Dem votes.
Today is Jim Robinson's birthday!
Please money bomb the FReep-a-Thon thread.
We'd sure love to wrap this up for Jim today!
We here in Iowa kicked out our George Soros SoS “Project” Sec of State. :-)!
Well, at least in this race the Dem is winning. They don’t have to magically find any more votes for Dayton. They just have to deep six any votes for Emmer.
You know it will take 8 months for them to do that recount and if nothing else since Minn. Republicans just took control of both chambers with Gov. Pawlenty remaining on they could actually get something done. I hope they use whatever time they get to do that if nothing else it will really throw a kink in the liberal’s plans there.
The winner is not determined by the votes. He/she is determined by whomever counts the votes.
Soros lost SOS’s last night......
That’s very good news.
Actually I thought it was a master stroke on Soros part to come up with this plot - it’s the key to controlling the outcome of elections.
I think the Soros crew was inspired by the 2000 POTUS election and their hate of Katherine Harris in FL.
I am told that Emmer can win the recount.
Minnestoa: D incumbent wins
Illinois- Big win for incumbent D
Indiana- GOP hold
Wisconsin- Sadly narrow win for rat incumbent
Cali-D inc wins
Iowa: Narrow GOP gain it looks like!
New Mexico: GOP Gain!! First time since 1928!
Nevada: D hold, GOP wins Gov and LT Gov, nothing else statewide
Arkansas: GOP gain!!! (first time??) Guy has the same name as a NASCAR star, interesting
Alabama: GOP hold
Michigan: GOP Hold (yet another female Republican)
Ohio: GOP GAIN!! Vital gain.
GA: GOP Hold
SC: GOP Hold
CT: Rat hold
MA: Rat hold (Sec of the Commonwealth)
VT: rat hold
RI: rat hold
I think that’s all of them (that have them elected and up this cycle)
Alaska and Hawaii have the LT Governor do it I think. Alaska is R and Hawaii is a D gain.
So we gain Iowa, OHIO, New Mexico!, and Arkansas.
New Mexico has not had a man in the SOS job since 1924. (Still don’t the winning R is a woman)
The Dem is already the winner, they won’t find any ballots. Republicans never find ballots.
We are not going to let them steal this one.
People split their tickets.
Here is WI, we had a sweep of Rs for all positions except the SoS. Why? His name is La Folette. In Wisconsin, this is a name to conjure with. A Progressive touchstone.
However, our AG was also returned and he is an R. So, there is, at least some check and balance against the SoS.
I loathe political dynasties. I’m hard pressed to find good ones, even on the GOP side.
Back in 2002 here in IL we had an Adali Stevenson run for State House. Thankfully he lost badly in a GOP district.
