The Great MN Governor’s Race: Primary Results (updated)

(For results of the 2010 Minnesota governor’s race, see here…)


9:50 p.m.: Matt Entenza has conceded the race (reported by KARE-11 ).

9:57 p.m.: KSTP reports Tom Horner the IP winner and Tom Emmer the Republican winner.

11:30 p.m.: According to the Secretary of State, if there are 2,000 or fewer votes between Margaret Anderson-Kelliher and Mark Dayton in the primary, an automatic primary recount will kick in. The State Canvassing Board is scheduled meet on August 17, 2010. With a critical general election for the Democrats this year already underway, however, a recount is probably not in the best interests of the Party and seems unlikely.

12:49 a.m.: AP declares Mark Dayton winner of the Democratic gubernatorial primary.
