A group of recount experts will meet today at the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs to discuss Minnesota’s second high profile recount in the past two years.

Included in the panel is Fritz Knaak, an attorney who worked for Norm Coleman’s campaign in the 2008 Senate recount, David Lillehaug, a Dayton campaign attorney who assisted Al Franken in the same race and county elections managers Joe Mansky and Rachel Smith. University of Minnesota Political Science professor Larry Jacobs will moderate the event.

Discussion will cover the next steps of the recount and “target the main issues.”

The event will be held at Cowles Auditorium in the Humphrey Institute from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
