Hubbard County's gubernatorial recount got under way precisely at 9 a.m. Monday.

Eight supporters of DFL candidate Mark Dayton and four supporters of GOP candidate Tom Emmer gathered in the Hubbard County courthouse, the latter hoping to erase an 8,800-vote lead by Dayton.


The recount began smoothly and quietly.

No major issues were reported as volunteers alertly monitored every ballot in the hand recount.
