Dayton: “You have my story for the day.”

Former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton officially kicked off his campaign for governor today after being in the race for a year. After the announcement, Dayton took just three questions from reporters after parading six supporters up to the podium to introduce him. He also gave a ten minute speech.
