With a late push, Dayton wins DFL nomination for governor
ST. PAUL - Mark Dayton apparently won the Democratic-Farmer-Laborite governor's nomination early today after northern Minnesota votes gave him the advantage over Margaret Anderson Kelliher.
The Associated Press declared Dayton the winner at 12:21 a.m. today after Kelliher led the primary election contest most of Tuesday night.
Dayton, a long-time state and federal official, took a slim lead with 91 percent of Minnesota's precincts reporting.
