"I'm on my way to recovery," Dayton said from the governor's residence in St. Paul Friday afternoon.
The governor had spent four days at Rochester Mayo's Clinic after the surgery.
Dayton has said repeatedly that the physical injury and recovery would not stop him from doing his job as governor or mounting a vigorous campaign for re-election. Dayton, who will need a brace for several months, staffers said the governor met with senior staff at the residence on Friday.
The governor had said he was not in significant pain, but the injury made his hip less stable.
Interest groups spent less slightly money lobbying state government in 2015 than in the previous year, according to a report released Wednesday by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board.
More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.
