Minnesota counties to be paid back for costs during governor's recount
ST. PAUL -- Republicans say they are paying what they owe Minnesota counties for information from last fall's governor election recount.
"We have about 20 counties left to go," GOP Chairman Tony Sutton said. "We have been chipping away on them."
Sutton estimated that the party could finish paying its recount bills within four weeks. He said about $20,000 remains to be paid.
