Four hours after Tony Sutton held his “I smell something rotten” press conference, Mark Dayton met with the press at the capitol to humbly say that he is not declaring victory, but that he believes in the integrity of the recount process and that should not be political.
It’s apparently hard for Sutton to understand how they could have won majorities in the House and Senate without winning the Governor’s race. Perhaps if he looks at the other statewide races, all won by Democrats, he would see that the rotten smell is coming from his own camp. The people of the state of MN chose the man with integrity to lead the state even though he will be working with two houses now controlled by the Republicans.
