Dayton v. Kennedy

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


Dayton: Breathing Easier?

With KSTP-TV's Tom Hauser saying yesterday that he thinks Mike Ciresi could mount a challenge to Mark Dayton for the Democratic nomination in 2006, it seems there is another potential challenger Dayton may have to worry a bit less about.

KMSP-TV has some pictures of "lobbyist" Bill Luther partying at the state capitol with failed congressional candidate Janet Robert. Luther, a prolific fundraiser, was recently mentioned by syndicated columnist Robert Novak to be a likely intra-party challenger to Dayton.

Perhaps more significantly is today's piece by Kevin Diaz wherein possible Luther campaign finance irregularities are revealed:

Minnesota Democrat Bill Luther was not on the ballot for the U.S. House last year, but that didn't stop the former congressman from accepting $12,500 in donations and racking up $63,443 in bills for campaign office expenses, travel and gas for two pickup trucks."
