From Jeremy Hubbell:
Good post yesterday on the pollsters in MN. Here’s two more with the first piece = the stakes.
Dayton won, BUT if the recount is in doubt for long enough, then PAWLENTY (who has eyes on the presidency) will get to set the budget and deny MN participation in a Medicaid expansion (which everyone here wants – meaning the hospitals, etc. – but tea partiers don’t).
Now, second piece below: They are bringing in the courts to – get this – make sure the number of votes match the voters – that’s right. To make sure voting fraud did not happen and thus add a layer of delay to the recount…
