The state of Minnesota will help underwrite DFL Gov. Mark Dayton's re-election bid to the tune of $534,000 and give Republican challenger Jeff Johnson a nearly $400,000 cash boost.

Both gubernatorial hopefuls agreed to abide by spending limits and proved they gathered sufficient financial support from Minnesota donors in order to qualify for the state subsidy payments for their campaigns.

The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board on Tuesday released the information about the exact subsidy amounts the candidates for governor would receive.

It said the Independence Party candidate for governor, Hannah Nicollet, will not get a subsidy. But 236 other candidates for constitutional office or Minnesota House will be getting subsidies.
