ST. PAUL -- Tom Emmer does not plan to exercise his option to cancel a statewide governor's race recount, which will continue the race until at least Dec. 14.


"If they are on the losing side, they want to know it was fair," the Republican candidate said Wednesday about his supporters.

Saying he wants to make sure all votes are counted, and only those that should be counted, the 49-year-old lawyer seems at peace regardless of how a recount goes.
