Mark Dayton: Back in the Classroom

Mark Dayton at Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Mark Dayton's first ad campaign is currently under production. Footage is being shot on the farm of DFL activist Harold Eklund of Stanchfield, Minnesota. It will hit the airwaves during the next couple of weeks. This is great for Dayton's campaign, as it adds to his appeal to rural voters.

Harold Eklund and his brother Roger are longtime Minnesota Farmers Union members and Democratic supporters. Their farm has also been featured in a campaign commercial for 8th Congressional District U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar.

Dayton's medica consultant Mike Donilon helped create ads for Dayton’s 2000 U.S. Senate campaign. He’s also an adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, who was a colleague of Dayton’s when they served in the Senate.

Dayton appears to be the only candidate who is currently making sure that he has strong rural ties. To rule out rural Minnesota would be a disaster. Dayton has been a key figure in Minnesota politics since the late 1960's. He has seen things that most of us can only guess at. He knows what works in Minnesota politics, he knows what doesn't work, and he knows how to make Minnesota work for Minnesotans again.

Mark Dayton also knows exactly how to fix our budget crisis. He knows where the money is and he knows how to get it. He has promised to raise taxes on the richest Minnesotans, who can afford to pay their fare share of taxes. He has also promised to not rasie taxes on those who can't afford it. Dayton has a long history of keeping his word. He's of the highest ethical and moral standards. If he says he's going to do something, you can bet that he will do it. That's just the kind of person he is.

I can't think of anyone I'd rather have for the next governor of Minnesota. Mark Dayton has a long history of caring about the people of Minnesota. We haven't had a governor who truly cares about Minneotans in over twenty years. It's definitely time.
