From the St. Paul Pioneer-Press :
In a rare statewide recount, votes will be tabulated again in the primary election for the number four seat on the Supreme Court, the state Canvassing Board announced at its meeting today.
The seat currently held by Justice Lorie Skjerven Gildea was contested by three people in last week's primary. Two of them, Hennepin County District Judge Deborah Hedlund and Jill Clark, a private attorney, came in second and third, respectively.
But the difference was only 1,348 votes -- or .43 percent of the total.
