POLITICAL NOTEBOOK: Dayton switches to general election mode

Email News Alerts

ST. PAUL -- Mark Dayton won big in northern Minnesota Tuesday, but a primary election is far different than the general election he faces on Nov. 2.


Dayton said that even if Democratic-Farmer-Laborite voters liked one of the other candidates better, he still expects them to fall in line for him in the general election contest.

The former U.S. senator won nearly every county north of the Twin Cities area, and many to the south.
