Greater Minnesota gets Dayton shout-out
ST. PAUL — Gov. Mark Dayton focused much of his State of the State speech Wednesday night on greater Minnesota, from HitchDoc in southern Minnesota's Jackson to the Kelliher schools in the north.
He used areas outside the Twin Cities to tout the state's economic growth, but also to illustrate what he sees as the need for more state spending.
"This economic growth is happening all over our state," the Democratic governor said.
