Dayton victory speech includes call to cooperate

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is calling on his political opponents to join him in building a better state.

Dayton won a second term easily over Republican Jeff Johnson on Tuesday, and in his victory speech said he’s hoping Democrats keep their majority in the state House.

But his remarks allowed for the possibility that the GOP will win the chamber. Dayton says he thinks both parties want what’s best for the state — they just disagree on details.

He says politicians’ children and grandchildren will inherit the state, and they’ll ask who made it better for them.

At 67, Dayton is Minnesota’s oldest governor and has said this was his final campaign.
