Need reasons to be suspicious of Ritchie? We've got 'em.


The National Republican Senatorial Committee has a nice long list of reasons to not trust Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie. The Communist Party wrote encouragingly of his candidacy! That's a deal breaker.

Talking Points Memo published a document from the NRSC raising questions about Ritchie's ability to run a nonpartisan recount.

Ritchie will be heading the state's recount in the Senate race against Sen. Norm Coleman and Al Franken. Coleman currently leads with just over 200 votes.
