Tight governor's race invokes memories of Franken-Coleman recount 2 years ago
Hit the rewind button for 2008. Minnesotans probably will wait weeks to find out who they elected governor while they watch judges wade through stacks of ballots to decide a winner in the tight race.
Secretary of State Mark Ritchie said the process of determining the governor winner between Democrat Mark Dayton and Republican Tom Emmer will be much like in the 2008 U.S. Senate recount. That recount and a court challenge that followed delayed Al Franken's victory for eight months.
