And the big political story in Minnesota is... another recount!

This time, at least, the race between Democratic ex-senator Mark Dayton and Republican Tom Emmer isn't going to drag on for six months- Dayton seems to have an insurmountable lead.

The things I don't understand are three: After 20 years of no Democratic governor, we finally get one, and... it's Mark Dayton? There were about 20 people running for governor across both parties, and the winner is... Mark Dayton? And both houses of the state legislature go Republican, but the governor is going to be... Mark Dayton???
