Reid Statement On Minnesota State Race Recount

Washington, DCSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today after the Minnesota Canvassing Board confirmed that the state’s Senate race must go to a recount:

“As the Minnesota Canvassing Board rightfully recognized today, the race is too close to call and today’s canvass is just one step in a process to ensure every Minnesotan’s vote is counted.  We look forward to hearing the results of the full recount, as required by state law, so the Senate can seat a properly elected Senator from Minnesota in time for the start of the 111th Congress.  Minnesota has long been known for and proud of its fair elections, and we expect this year to be no different.”
