GOP's Franson Wins Minn. House Recount

Republican Rep. Mary Franson has won a recount over her Democratic challenger in their western Minnesota state House race.

Franson picked up one vote in Thursday's recount in Otter Tail County. That gives her an unofficial 12-vote lead over Bob Cunniff.

Cunniff says he has conceded the race and will not go to court. The retired teacher and coach from Alexandria says "it's just time to move on."

The state Canvassing Board meets Tuesday to certify the results.

Democrats took control of the House by a sizeable majority in the election, meaning control is not at stake in the Franson-Cunniff recount.
