Former DFL House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher predicted “I think it’s a strong win for Mark Dayton tonight.” Dayton defeated Kelliher in the primary election. She noted that Dayton did well in the 8th Congressional District in the primary and that seems to be true tonight. She added “Mark’s been telling the truth and people really appreciate that right now” when it comes to his plan to raise income taxes.
Finally, I often get asked if Kelliher will run again, she said she’s not sure, but added “It’s time for me to focus on my new job and that’s about jobs and education. I don’t know what the future holds, so I wouldn’t rule it out.” She is the new leader of the Minnesota High Tech Association.
