GOP's Mills to seek recount after narrowly losing northeastern Minnesota congressional race


Republican Stewart Mills said Monday he would request — and pay for — a hand recount of votes in the congressional race he narrowly lost to DFL U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan.

"We just want to make sure that every vote gets counted, and counted correctly," Mills said in an interview. "We're prepared to accept whatever is the genuine will of the voters, but we would be negligent not to seek this recount."

Nolan, the incumbent, beat Mills by 2,009 votes of a total of 356,971 cast in northeastern Minnesota's Eighth Congressional District. That margin, a little more than one-half a percent, is too large to trigger an automatic, state-funded recount.
