Emmer makes first comments since election night at 1 p.m.

Tom Emmer will hold a press conference at 1 p.m., marking his first public appearance since (apparently) losing Tuesday’s election.

The Republican candidate will reportedly talk about continuing the battle until every vote is counted, says AP’s Brian Bakst on a Twitter post.

As of 9:30 a.m., DFLer Mark Dayton led Emmer by 8,751 votes, according to the secretary of state’s website, which updates totals whenever changes are reported by county counters.
