SoS Joan Grow on Election Contest

via PiPress:
Like every election, this one had a winner. True, the margin was close. But as Minnesota's secretary of state, I supervised dozens upon dozens of recounts.

We verify who won the best way we can, but it is never correct to suggest that no one did.

One candidate won this Senate race, too. Of course, many of us wish that he had won it by a larger margin, allowing him to get to work immediately.

But all of us should be glad that we live in a state that has established a fair, transparent and meticulous process for determining who won the race when the margin is so close that the returns on Election Night are inconclusive.
