so if his horse wins the state gets the winings since we're probably paying his way
Good for him. Why do the taxpayers have to pay for it?
I make his odds at no better than 35 to 1
I just wanted to check out their website. No agenda on the event to be found. Sounds like back patting for this one. Then again, it's partisan so what did you expect? IMO, This better be on the DFL's dime. That said, the GOP has their own version and hopefully both are relying on their supporters' contributions to fund their politicking. Therein lies a possible story but I can see why this item is published due to the DFL bashing going on lately. It sells papers and this one even leans left.
He is going on Saturday, attending the big event Saturday and returning Sunday. So when is he going to find time to conduct state business on this taxpayer-funded trip?
What a coincidence, the governor's convention at the same time as the Derby. Hope he can get back in time for "work" on Monday!
Ahh, yes. Markie working for the "middle class" attending an event populated by billionaires. A real "man of the people" partying on tha taxpayers dime. What a man.
meanwhile, my state taxes go up 20% to pay for his party.
"Gov. Mark Dayton is traveling to Kentucky this weekend for a meeting of the Democratic Governors Association where he also has plans to take in the Kentucky Derby. -- Isn't that nice, a vacation funded by the MN taxpayers. If this were Pawlenty the liberals would be screaming bloody murder.
Goody goody so newsworthy.
So, if he wins any money on the bets does it go the Vikings stadium? Well, maybe not. The only bets he will make are the ones the Union tells him and they always pick a loser.
