MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — On WCCO Sunday Morning, I did an extended interview with Gov. Mark Dayton.

With just over three weeks until Election Day, Dayton is enjoying a 10-point lead over his Republican opponent Jeff Johnson, according to an average of the recent polls in the race.

In the wide-ranging interview, Dayton responds to questions about developments in Texas, where a health care worker has been diagnosed with Ebola, to the controversy surrounding his support for a tax on gasoline, as well as claims by his opponent that he does not know what is in the bills he has signed.
