The Minnesota Professional Fire Fighters union has endorsed DFLer Mark Dayton’s bid for governor.
The union had endorsed Gov. Tim Pawlenty in 2002 and 2006.
Dayton and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner had screened with the firefighters and answered their questions; Republican Tom Emmer declined to participate.
Dayton also picked up the Minneapolis police union endorsement Monday and support earlier from the statewide Minnesota Police & Peace Officers union.
