Did you catch Team Dayton and Team Emmer’s dramatic jockeying for position Friday, as a gubernatorial recount looms? You can watch the press conference held by Dayton lawyers Charlie Nauen and David Lillehaug. Reacting to the news that Emmer and the Republicans had sued St. Louis and Pine Counties, Lillehaug accused the GOP of embarking on “a fishing expedition.”
Over the weekend, The UpTake also aired President Obama’s keynote address at the APEC CEO Summit in Yokohama, Japan, and Obama’s weekly address to the nation, that fiscal discipline requires transparency on earmarks.
