Republican Tom Emmer will concede the governor’s race to Democrat Mark Dayton tomorrow. A person with knowledge of Emmer’s plans says Emmer will make the announcement at 10:30 in his hometown of Delano.
Democrat Mark Dayton’s spokeswoman Katherine Tinucci said they have no comment at this point.
“We have not heard from the Emmer campaign this evening,” Tinucci said.
