Gov. Dayton home from hospital, plans full schedule Tuesday


Gov. Mark Dayton plans a full schedule of events Tuesday, following his release from a St. Paul hospital Monday afternoon.

Dayton spent the previous night at Regions Hospital after he fainted during a private event in Woodbury Sunday evening.


An aide to Dayton tells the Pioneer Press the governor was treated for dehydration. The newspaper reports Dayton plans to attend an 8 a.m. breakfast event with the education group Achieve Minneapolis and will meet with the news media afterward.

The governor, who turned 69 last week, has been hospitalized for back and hip treatments during his second term, which continues until 2019.

MPR News notes that last week Dayton said he plans a busy summer of travel, during which he plans to visit each of Minnesota's 87 counties.
