Not a positive thing. I'd encourage people not to supply him, or his party any more funds to attack the state with as he is currently doing.

Considerably less than last go round. I think even former Dayton supporters have seen that this guy is clearly not fit to govern. Way too many mistakes, and these mistakes have been very costly to the people he is supposed to represent. Not only that but a lot of very odd behavior which is par for the course with Dayton. This is the guy who's peer's called illogical, irrational, and unpredictable while he was a Senator. Time to retire Mr. Dayton. You have done enough damage.

lol save your money Dayton and don't run. As someone who voted for you previously, I won't make that same mistake twice.

Sounds great! Add to that the millions from the unions and Gov. Dayton should have an easy time getting reelected.

msfb99, Thank you for being able to recognize that Dayton has been a total failure. I hope other people who had supported this guy in the past are able to admit the truth as well. I'm sure Dayton is a nice man, but he really has no business making decisions on our behalf.

This is truly government at work. Where else does a person pay many, many, many times more dollars, whether their own, or other people's dollars, than they will ever earn at the job than our elected officials. Where does this ever make sense to pay more to get the job, than what you will earn at it. Great example our leaders set for our children.

Cost of Dayton's Super Bowl visit to be paid by state Posted by: Rachel E. Stassen-Berger under Minnesota governor, Gov. Mark Dayton, State budgets Updated: January 27, 2014 - 5:51 PM ---------------------------------------------------Why not pick up the tab for your latest goofy behavior from this "banked" money. These are the fools who support you. Let THEM pay for your ill-advised foolish waste of tax dollars.

Sorry Mark, I gave my $4000 to charity in 2013. How much did you give to charity, Mark?

since I donate some of that money, I'd be perfectly fine if Dayton took the money and just left. We've had enough of his bizarre unpredictable behavior and absence of leadership on MNSure and other key iniitiatives. Or better yet, how about he donate the 3/4 of million to make up for the shortfall in e-pulltab revenue...and we'll call it even?
