ST. PAUL -- Mark Dayton leads Tom Emmer in the Minnesota governor vote count and also leads in getting ready to serve.

Even though it probably will be more than a month before a winner is known, Dayton is beginning the process of picking top aides with a lead of less than 9,000 votes in the country's only undecided governor's race.


Democrat Dayton and Republican Emmer both are making plans to be governor, although Dayton is further along.
