The recount battle continues for Mark Dayton and Tom Emmer for their race to be governor, according to the Star Tribune.
Dayton is in the lead by one half of a percent. A large investment is necessary to complete the recount, but republicans are ready to pay what is needed to see their man on top.
"I don't think there's any downside to keeping this recount going on as long as possible," said a high-level Republican operative who wished to remain anonymous.
For Dayton, an estimated $2 million dollars may be needed to complete the recount.
