Coleman, Dayton lead gubernatorial field

Posted by: under Minnesota U.S. senators, Minnesota governor Updated: January 13, 2010 - 7:33 AM

A new poll finds former U.S. Senators Mark Dayton and Norm Coleman ahead of their rivals in the race to replace Tim Pawlenty as governor.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 52 percent of likely Republican voters in Minnesota would support Coleman for the GOP nomination -- even though Coleman hasn't said whether he'll jump into the already-crowded race.

Support for all other GOP candidates was mired in the single digits.

Dayton is supported by 34 percent of likely Democratic voters, trailed by Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, supported by 25 percent.

The full poll results can be seen here.
