MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – One day after revealing he has cancer, and two days after collapsing at the State Capitol, Gov. Mark Dayton was out and about Wednesday.
At 8:45 a.m. he spoke at the Safe and Supportive Schools Conference at the University of Minnesota.
Dayton did see a Mayo Clinic doctor Tuesday about his fainting spell during his State of the State address. A Mayo spokesman said the doctor thought the fainting was related to the governor standing for a long time and possible dehydration.
The Mayo spokesperson said the fainting is not related to his prostate cancer diagnosis made last week.
Dayton has appointments next week to determine a treatment plan for the cancer.
