Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006



From this morning's Strib:

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sen. Mark Dayton will travel to Iraq to visit U.S. troops over the holidays, the Minnesota Democrat announced Friday.
No specific dates were announced.
Earlier this week, Dayton complained that his request to go to Iraq as part of a trip by the Senate Armed Services Committee had been declined.
On Friday, Dayton, a member of the committee, said he would participate in a separate trip organized by Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn.
"Senator Dayton is very appreciative to Senator Lieberman for including him on this important trip," said Chris Lisi, Dayton's spokeswoman.
Dayton plans to meet with Minnesotans who are serving in Iraq and with government officials to discuss the country's upcoming elections.
On the trip, Dayton also will stop in Israel and Jordan.
