Dayton Ushers In 1st MN Dem. Admin In 20 Years

January 3, 2011, 7:15 AM

ST. PAUL, MN - Gov.-elect Mark Dayton's inauguration brings a changing of the guard that has a Democrat coming back into power in Minnesota for the first time in 20 years.
 
Dayton was to take his oath Monday at Landmark Center in St. Paul. His swearing-in will break what had become the third-longest Democratic drought for a governorship in any state.

The 63-year-old is Minnesota's oldest rookie governor. He'll enter office opposite a Legislature where Republicans will control both chambers.

Dayton survived a close election and recount to beat Republican Tom Emmer and the Independence Party's Tom Horner in November. 

Connecticut, which like Minnesota had gone without a Democrat in the role since 1991, also elected one in November. The states with longer Democratic outages are South Dakota and Utah.
