Some counties looking for recount reimbursement
Alexandria, Minn. (AP) — Some county officials in Minnesota say they're still waiting to be reimbursed for the gubernatorial recount. The state Republican Party says it's paying the bills as they are reviewed.
Grant County auditor Chad Van Santen says they've sent a number of letters to Republican candidate Tom Emmer and the state Republican Party seeking reimbursement for making copies of 4,000 documents and for the hours worked by election officials. Van Santen says the Emmer campaign told the county to forward the bill to the state party. State Republican Party spokesman Mark Drake says they have received no complaints about nonpayment.
Officials in Kandiyohi County and Stevens County tell KSAX-TV they also have not been reimbursed.
