What will Mark Dayton be doing after he's sworn in as governor Monday?
Helping Democrats in the Legislature raise money.
It's against state law for political caucuses to raise money during the legislative session, so they plan to do it the day before the session starts on Tuesday.
Senate Republicans have already sent out the invites for a fundraiser of their own Monday.
Now Democrats in both the House and Senate have announced their plans to collect some cash, with the help of the new governor.
Here's the invitation:
DFL Senate Caucus Leader
