First a recount, then a trial?
"It could be," said Republican Party chair Tony Sutton. "We think there are some legitimate issues."
Sutton said among the issues that the Republicans could ask a court to consider, after the Dec. 14 end of the gubernatorial recount.

Gov. Mark Dayton, speaking to a mostly Republican audience at the annual Minnesota Business Partnership dinner, repeated his familiar attack on the House GOP, blaming them for a legislative impasse on transportation.
The 20-year-old suspect in the deadly Washington state mall shooting said nothing and appeared "zombie-like" when he was arrested by authorities nearly 24 hours into an intense manhunt, authorities said.
