ROCHESTER, Minn. -- Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton's hip surgery at Mayo Clinic went well.

“He's resting comfortably,” Dayton Press Secretary Matt Swenson said Monday.

The surgery was to reattach a tendon to his hip.

Dayton is to remain at Mayo a couple more days, then wear a hip brace for three months. The 67-year-old governor is expected to mostly work at home for a few weeks.
