Obama will rally for Mark Dayton

Obama will be in town to fete DFL gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton at the University of Minnesota at 1 p.m. At that time Saturday, Republican Tom Emmer will be rallying his own faithful at Godfather's Pizza in Burnsville. Unless that's the world's biggest pizza joint, Obama and Dayton may have numbers on their side at that moment.
