A word of wisdom to the St. Paul Pioneer Press editorial board

The only do-over anyone allowed by state law is the one scheduled for 2014.

209.07 Subd. 2 sets the terms for an election to be declared invalid: " [A] serious and material defect in the ballots used changed the outcome of the election for the contested office." That's it. That's the only reason.

Nowhere did the legislature decide that a "statistical tie" (whatever that means) is a reason for a do-over.
