Dayton, DFL leaders traveling the state Tuesday, saying the GOP did nothing

On the heels of the legislative session that will be known as a rare Vikings victory, Gov. Mark Dayton is flying around the state today to push his message that the GOP-led Legislature really did nothing this year.

Except for that stadium, of course, which the DFLers are taking credit for, having put up more votes for it than the Republicans.

Dayton, joined by state Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk and House Minority Leader Rep. Paul Thissen, left the St. Paul airport this morning with stops scheduled in Duluth, Moorhead and Rochester.

They’ll make appearances at the airports in those cities, so they will be media events, with local legislators showing up at each of the stops.

A major talking point: The only two accomplishments of the session were the bonding bill and the stadium, and the DFL is taking credit for both.

    I wonder if they’re remembering

    to mention all the republican bills that Dayton vetoed. Probably not.
