Elbow pain sends Dayton to hospital

Posted by: Baird Helgeson under Gov. Mark Dayton, Democrats Updated: April 2, 2014 - 6:54 PM

Gov. Mark Dayton checked into Regions Hospital in St. Paul briefly Wednesday afternoon for doctors to check on an elbow he bruised over the weekend.

Dayton was experiencing discomfort during the day and decided to get it checked out around 4 p.m., said Dayton spokesman Linden Zakula.

“Regions took great care of him,” Zakula said.

Dayton was heading home around 6:30 p.m. and planned to resume working at the governor’s residence.

He is expected to be back and the Capitol on Thursday and will resume his normal schedule. He has a 9 a.m. radio interview planned and meetings throughout the day.

The governor had hip surgery earlier this year and spent a month working from the governor’s residence while he recuperated.
