  1. All the 43A precinct results are in on Ramsey County webpage (http://www.co.ramsey.mn.us/elections/results2012.htm). Add those to the Washington County results in the Secretary of State, and Fischer wins by 1,075 votes. Mahtomedi went heavily for Stout, but Fischer cleaned up in the Ramsey County precincts.

  2. (Also, your timestamps appear not to have fallen back with daylight savings, or you wrote this article a quarter hour in the future.)

  3. Now maybe we can get back to serving people instead of stodgy and narrow-minded religion. Government is meant to help people, not churches or those who don’t need help.
