In case you missed MPR’s Capitol View blog late last night:
Three people with knowledge of the hire say Dayton is appointing (Sen. Larry) Pogemiller to run the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. The people asked not to be identified because they didn’t want to step on Dayton’s announcement. Dayton’s spokesman, Bob Hume, wouldn’t confirm the hire but said they will have an announcement on that position Friday morning.
