For 2nd Time, Dayton Backs Clinton For President

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is joining those urging former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to try for the presidency in 2016.

Dayton on Thursday signed onto the “Ready for Hillary” group that is trying to lay the groundwork for a Clinton campaign. She hasn’t said whether she will make a second try for the White House.

In a news release, Dayton called Clinton “the most qualified person” to be the next president. He also backed her in the 2008 presidential race when she lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama.

Clinton and Dayton served alongside each other in the U.S. Senate.
