Starting Lineup: Singling Out Stabenow

Dayton In Control: Meanwhile in Minnesota gubernatorial recount, Democrat Mark Dayton appears to be expanding his lead over Republican Tom Emmer. With approximately 70 percent of ballots recounted, Dayton has gained about 28 votes and still leads by nearly 9,000 votes. Emmer's campaign has challenged many more ballots than Dayton -- 597 to 143. Dayton is already acting like the governor-elect, attending the DGA meeting in Washington on Wednesday. He may be in for a court battle though, as Minnesota GOP Chair Tony Sutton told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune late Tuesday that Republicans "could" ask the court system to address voter "vouching" -- where a registered voter can attest for an unregistered voter so he/she can register on Election Day -- and "reconciliation" -- the process officials go through on Election Night to make sure the number of votes matches the number of voters. Don't Miss: Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) will be on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Wednesday night.
