Dayton returning to Mayo over hip issue

Gov. Mark Dayton is returning to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Wednesday to visit with a specialist about his ailing hip, The Associated Press reports.

Dayton says that he's having a problem with stability and that pain is not the issue.

The Mayo visit comes a day after Dayton reportedly fell during a meeting of the Capitol Preservation Commission. A spokesman says the governor caught his foot on a chair leg, which caused the tumble.

Dayton, who turns 67 on Sunday, said his hip problem will not interfere his bid for re-election in November, the AP says.

The governor suffered a muscle tear in his hip last summer. He had a procedure done this fall to alleviate pain in his hip and returned to work in November.

Dayton also had spinal surgery at the Mayo in December 2012 to fuse a vertebrae in an area that was shifting out of alignment.
