Republicans pay bill for governor race recount

Email News Alerts

Douglas County can clear an unpaid bill of $204.05 from its books.

That was how much the county charged the Minnesota Republican Party for its request for copies of documents during the recount of the Mark Dayton-Tom Emmer race for governor.


The recount wrapped up more than a month ago. The DFL Party, which requested the same documents, paid its bill immediately but the bill for the Republican Party lingered.
