Dayton cancels Super Bowl trip

Gov. Mark Dayton has canceled a planned trip to New York to assist with efforts to lure the 2018 Super Bowl to Minnesota.

He was scheduled to leave Friday and meet with NFL officials. But Dayton’s office announced this afternoon that he will remain in Minnesota for an emergency meeting of state’s Executive Council on Friday afternoon.

The council will discuss the shortage of propane and heating fuel across the state.

Dayton will also speak at the funeral of civil rights leader Matthew Little on Saturday in Minneapolis.
