This could be recount land. Perhaps Graves could win outright, or Norm the witch.
Down to the wire? The above screenshot is current, as of almost midnight, with 2/3 of the district counted and reported to the Secretary of State. It is close. Let us hope.
The slower precincts changed the closeness of the contest. Bachmann is the victor, and a Graves recount would be as foolish as the Emmer recount was. Although ill-filled out ballots likely would concentrate greatly on the Bachmann side, her support being what it is, finding enough of that would be the problem in a recount.
And when I wrote, "slower precincts" please do not ask me to disambiguate the term.
