Minnesota governor recount set for Monday

The Minnesota state canvassing board Tuesday formally cleared the way for a recount in the razor-thin governor's race between Democratic candidate Mark Dayton and Republican state lawmaker Tom Emmer.

The recount begins Monday. Just 8,770 votes separate the two, with Dayton leading by less than one-half of one percent.

    Mark Dayton was the one giving away free college tuition to illegals at the tax payers expense in Minnesota. Even worse it was based on having a Hiispanic last name! Unfortunately half of these people were already US. citizens. We don't need anymore Jesse Venturas or Harry Reids in Minnesota! .... I hope Mark Dayton loses!!!

    What else would you expect from a Democrat! I remember that whole debacle and it was embarassing for Minnesota. The (D) behind Mark Daytons name is for discrimination against struggling middle class families that needed that assistance for college also! I hope hope he loses too!
