Every vote counts

The local community paper has an editorial today: "Never underestimate the power of one"

And it says, among others:

One vote difference in only eight percent of Minnesota's precinct would have given the 2008 U.S Senate race to Norm Coleman instead of Al Franken.

Two votes per precinct would have given the 2010 gubernatorial race to Tom Emmer instead of Mark Dayton.

(Seems though, that it is the Republicans who missed their call..)

They can't win a majority of votes, so they need to remove a bunch of Democratic ones.
