Poll is good news for Dayton, bad news for Horner

Two of Minnesota's three major governor candidates can take heart in a poll released just before the weekend.

The poll shows Democrat Mark Dayton in front with 42 percent of the vote, followed by Republican Tom Emmer with 37 percent. That still is a close race, given the chance for error in a survey.
