Mark Dayton congratulates new GOP legislative leaders, vows to work with them if he’s declared governor

In the early going — and still facing a recount in the governor’s race — DFLer Mark Dayton is playing nice with the new Republican leadership in the Legislature. He released this statement as the new GOP committee chairs and caucus leaders were announced:

“I congratulate the new Committee Chairs in both the Minnesota House and Senate, and the newly elected leadership in the Caucuses.

“Minnesotans are counting on all of us to work together to address the serious challenges before us, and, should I be declared the winner on December 14, my Administration will stand ready to work with the new leadership in the State Legislature to serve the people of Minnesota.”
