Dayton takes aim at Republicans on recount

Democrat Mark Dayton said Republicans are grasping at straws on the road to an automatic recount in the gubernatorial race, according to the Star Tribune.

Dayton's 8,755 vote lead over Republican Tom Emmer is on the road to an automatic recount. Yet, Dayton said in an interview with Minnesota Public Radio that Republicans are "desperate" in their efforts to claim a victory, according to the Pioneer Press.

Emmer and GOP have gone to court demanding to see numbers concerning the election and have asked for reform on recount rules, according to the Pioneer Press.

"I think basically they're desperate," Dayton said, according to the Star Tribune. "It's not just throwing 'Hail Marys' it's throwing spitballs at the wall to see which ones will stick."
