After the election for Cook County Commissioner ended in a tie – 246 votes for each of the two candidates – a coin flip on Monday will determine the winner. We talk to both candidates.
From the Duluth News Tribune:
Voters in eastern Cook County, the very tip of Minnesota's Arrowhead, deadlocked Tuesday on who should be their next county commissioner.
Frank Moe, a dog musher, former state lawmaker and environmental activist, received 246 votes -- exactly the same as Kristin DeArruda Wharton for the 1st District commissioner seat that includes Grand Portage, Hovland and Colvill.
