One vote lead expands to 11

Author:

The State Representative who held a solitary vote lead over her opponent has widened it to eleven.

Republican State Rep. Mary Franson, a house freshman, holds the lead over Bob Cunniff, her DFL challenger. The two are running to represent District 8B in Douglas County.

The Star Tribune reports the Franson's wider lead will not alter plans for a full recount, scheduled to begin next week. The state canvassing board plans to meet Nov. 27. The district recount is set to begin the following day.

The Douglas County board of canvassers discarded 35 randomly chosen ballots Wednesday afternoon to make up for ballots mistakenly cast in the District 8B race by residents of neighboring House District 12B.
