Who will be on second Dayton ticket? Tuesday press conference set
January 15, 2014 — 9:31am
Gov. Mark Dayton met with his number two Monday afternoon to learn whether she will stick around for a second term.
Before the meeting both Dayton and Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon were quiet about their plans.
Forty minutes after their meeting was to begin, a gubernatorial spokesman released an advisory saying she planned to talk to the press at 9 a.m. Tuesday. The release said she would "announce her plans for the future" and little else.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
