Dayton vetoes GOP budget bills, blames right wing
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton today vetoed Republican legislators' $34 billion budget plan, blaming right-wing Republicans for failure to negotiate.
"It is wrong, it is so unMinnesotan," Dayton said about Republican action.
While Dayton said GOP leaders are reasonable, he said the conservative wing of the party, mostly new lawmakers, know little about state government and care less about it.
