Gov. Dayton crisscrosses the country for big meetings

Gov. Mark Dayton will be on both coasts this week for governor meetings, including a big one Tuesday with President Obama.

On Monday he’s flying to California for the Democratic Governors Association’s annual meeting at the Beverly Wilshire, in Beverly Hills.

Tonight he gets back on a plane for a trip to Washington for the National Governors Association Executive Committee Meeting. That group will go to the White House to talk with President Obama and Vice President Biden about the fiscal cliff, and its impact on states and potential solutions.

Other governors at the Tuesday meeting will be:

  • Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, NGA chair
  • Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, NGA vice chair
  • Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe
  • Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper
  • Utah Gov. Gary Herbert
  • Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Dayton will be part of a governors’ press conference after that meeting.
