Gov. Mark Dayton proudly bought a “Vote No” T-shirt during the Democratic National Convention Tuesday, demonstrating his opposition to the anti-gay marriage amendment on the Minnesota ballot in November.
Dayton also expressed his support for the historic plank in the Democratic platform, which for the first time endorses same-sex marriage.
Dayton called it a “very powerful statement…I’m proud it’s in this platform and it says a lot about movement forward in this Democratic party,” he said.
Much of the state delegation wore the same “Vote No” T-shirt on the convention floor. The platform was adopted by acclamation.
Rep. Erik Paulsen called for an independent investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election following President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, going further than many GOP lawmakers in the aftermath of a move that has roiled the Capitol over the last day.
