Dayton sets inaugural


ST. PAUL -- Mark Dayton will take the oath of office at noon Jan. 3 in St. Paul's Landmark Center.

He will be joined by other statewide elected officials in the same place that Tim Pawlenty became governor in 2003.

Dayton picked the theme "Going to Work for Minnesota," which sounds a lot like what he and other Minnesota political candidates said during the recently completed campaign.
