2010: Turn out the lights in Minnesota

It’s Over: “Republican Tom Emmer will concede the 2010 Minnesota governor's race this morning to Democrat Mark Dayton,” the Pioneer Press reports. “Emmer's 10:30 a.m. concession means he will not contest the election in court — thus averting a scenario that could have kept Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty in office past the scheduled Jan. 3 swearing-in of the next governor.”

NY-1: Newsday says that Republican Randy Altschuler picked up four votes on Rep. Tim Bishop yesterday as Suffolk county election officials counted 100 ballots. “Bishop's margin over Altschuler is now either 263 votes (according to Altschuler spokesman Rob Ryan) or 270 votes (according to Bishop spokesman Jon Schneider).”
