Democrat Mark Dayton says he'll announce his running mate on Monday. Dayton, who is challenging DFL endorsed candidate Margaret Anderson Kelliher and former legislator Matt Entenza in a primary, wouldn't disclose he's running mate. But he outlined his priorities for the pick.
"Someone who is well qualified to be governor if that eventuality should arise," Dayton said. "Someone who would be a good partner in the co-leadership of state government. Someone who brings life experience and in my case, I was looking for somebody who comes from a different part of the state geographically than myself."
Kelliher announced today that Minnetonka City Manager John Gunyou will be her running mate. Entenza said he's still considering several people and will make his announcement next week.
