AP Source: Emmer To Concede MN Governor Race
December 8, 2010, 7:07 AM
ST. PAUL, MN -
A Republican with knowledge of the decision tells The Associated Press that Republican Tom Emmer will concede the Minnesota governor's race to Democrat Mark Dayton.
The person says Emmer planned to make a public announcement Wednesday from his home in Delano. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak ahead of an official announcement.
Emmer's decision comes just hours after the Minnesota Supreme Court closed off a potential avenue for an election lawsuit. Emmer trailed Dayton by nearly 9,000 votes heading into a recount that has changed little. A Democratic official close to Dayton said the senator hadn't received a call from Emmer. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to comment publicly on the matter.
