Posted by: under Minnesota campaigns, Minnesota governor Updated: August 11, 2010 - 11:18 AM

DFL gubernatorial endorsee Margaret Anderson Kelliher conceded Wednesday morning. Here is her statement:

“I just spoke with Mark Dayton and congratulated him on winning the DFL primary. I offered him my full support. He will make an excellent governor.

“I am so grateful for all of the hard work of our volunteers and supporters over the last twelve months. This was a people-powered, grassroots campaign and we should all be proud of what we achieved together.

“In Minnesota we value every person’s voice and count every person’s vote. And that’s what happened this election.

“Today we will come together as DFLers. We will unite behind Mark Dayton, and beat Tom Emmer in November.”
