Minn. board certifies legislative recount winners

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Narrow wins by Republican Mary Franson and Democrat Kevin Dahle in legislative recounts have become official.

The State Canvassing Board certified the results of the recounts in House District 8B and Senate District 20 on Tuesday in St. Paul.

Franson won the 8B recount and a second term representing the Alexandria area by 12 votes over Democrat Bob Cuniff.

Dahle won the Senate recount in the Northfield area by 71 votes, beating Republican Mike Dudley. Dahle is a former senator returning after a two-year absence.

Neither recount affected party control of the Legislature. Democrats will take over both chambers when the new Legislature convenes next month.
