WASHINGTON (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton is in Washington for the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.

Dayton is joining other Democratic governors on Friday morning for meetings at the White House. Later in the day he’s attending a meeting of the NGA’s executive committee, of which he is a member.

On Saturday, Dayton is participating in a session with the governors of Kansas and Missouri on how to encourage economic growth and entrepreneurialism in the states.

The afternoon meeting is scheduled to be broadcast live on C-Span. On Sunday he’ll participate in sessions on reducing health care costs and on the future of energy and natural resources.

Before he returns to Minnesota on Monday, Dayton will attend another White House meeting with President Obama and other governors.

  1. Who is Dayton trying to fool? says:

    “Dayton is joining other Democratic governors on Friday morning for meetings at the White House”. So is this a national governors meeting, or “only the Democrat Governors need to show up meeting?” More of the same old same old. So this is the change you voted for folks. Just like the health care debate, “we love your ideas, but we will not invite you to the meetings to share them.” Hope and change, hope and change…..

    Where is the story on this web site about Maher giving 1 million dollars to Obama super pac? It is all over the web. Is this the change we all voted for? We hoped for change and got more of the same. Our politicians are bought and paid for adn this “news” site is not telling the whole story.

      I have had that problem too but I think is is a word press error if you hit the submit button too fast or something, I just go back and resubmit and then it seems to work.

      OH and Dayton please sign HB 1467

    3. politiciansSUX says:

      Kevin, Just hit the refresh button, it tends to post the comment you just tried to post. what do you expect from a company that does not hire proof editors and they can not even report national sotires like the MILLION dollar donation to the Obama Super Pac from Maher? This is not a news organization, it is Democrat Blog site. Keep them honest man.

      1. Jason says:

        I get that problem also. Not really sure about hitting the submit button too fast though? Wonder if word press error is a common problem?

  7. KEVIN says:
