Republican candidate for governor Tom Emmer  met with Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty Monday morning.

Pawlenty offered to meet with both Democrat Mark Dayton and Emmer to help them prepare in case they become governor. Late last week, Dayton set up a meeting for Tuesday at 4 p.m. and Emmer hadn't yet scheduled a meeting.

But over the weekend, Emmer and Pawlenty found a time to meet.

The Emmer meeting lasted about 45 minutes and included Emmer, Pawlenty, Pawlenty's chief of staff, management and budget commissioner Tom Hanson and an Emmer staffer. It was in the governor's state Capitol office, according to Pawlenty spokesman Bruce Gordon.

It revolved around the transition process, Gordon said.

Emmer has not spoken to the media or made any public appearances since election night. According to a campaign staffer, he drove one of his sons up to Canada over the weekend, where his son plays hockey.
