Emmer makes a withdrwal of ballot challenges

By Justin Reis

Rep. Tom Emmer is urging his attorneys to withdraw thousands of ballots his supporters have challenged during the recount of the governor's race, according to the Star Tribune..

Emmer said he is not going to prolong the recount for weeks or months. He is however, planning arguments if opponent Mark Dayton is declared the winner.

Reconciliation, which means to match the number of votes to the number of voters and remove any excess votes, and may be used against Dayton in court.

According to the Star Tribune, state GOP chair Tony Sutton suggested last week that reconciliation could be the foundation of a court challenge if Dayton prevails in the recount.
