Governor Dayton

Congratulations to Mark Dayton, who is now officially Minnesota's governor-elect after Tom Emmer conceded earlier this week. Dayton is Minnesota's first Democratic governor in 20 years, since Rudy Perpich was defeated in 1990, and the state now has a Democratic governor and two Democratic senators at the same time for the first time since the '60s. The GOP does control both houses of the state legislature, however.
