Minnesota Looking at Governor's Race Recount
4:36 PM, Nov 9, 2010 • By MICHAEL WARREN
Emmer campaign spokesman Carl Kuhl spoke with THE WEEKLY STANDARD in a phone interview today about the automatic recount. "We're going to see that process through," Kuhl said. "We see a real possibility here." Kuhl referenced misreported numbers in Hennepin County, the state's most populous county, where he said "the numbers just don't add up." Also awaiting to be counted, he said, were the absentee ballots -- specifically, the military ballots.
Kuhl declined to say where specifically in the state the Emmer campaign expects to pick up the nearly 9,000 votes it needs to win the race. "We're going to take this one step at a time," he said. He also declined to say whether or not the campaign believed there was any foul play involved in counting the votes.
