Emmer to concede Minn. governor’s race

Font Size:

Republican Tom Emmer is expected to concede the Minnesota governor’s race to DFLer Mark Dayton Wednesday, a GOP source with knowledge of Emmer’s plans said late Tuesday.

Emmer’s campaign issued a news release early Wednesday saying the candidate would make a “major announcement” about the recount at a 10:30 a.m. event at his Delano home.

The state Canvassing Board convened at 9 a.m. today, as scheduled, to begin ruling on disputed ballots. But with Emmer’s concession looming, the board adjourned after about a minute, and will resume at 11 a.m.
