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

Dayton: "I Will Be Nasty"

It would seem any rumors about Senator Dayton's voluntary departure from the 2006 Senate race can be put to bed -- for now. Yesterday in Anoka, the Senator fired up the 400 plus delegates at the DFL State Central Committee meeting. He also seems to know better than Gutknecht, Grams, Janacek et al who the Republican nominee will be:

Dayton also took aim at one Republican expected to run against him, Representative Mark Kennedy. He noted that several years ago, Kennedy had written President Bush urging the privitization of social security. But more recently, Kennedy has refused to discuss his position on social security.

"Not only will I discuss my position, " said Dayton, "but I'll disclose it as well."

Dayton is strongly against privitizing social security.

"Bring 'em on" shouted one delegate as Dayton wound down his speech.

"When we say 'bring 'em on', we stay and fight," said Dayton. "We don't go hide in Crawford, Texas."

The irony of Mark Dayton lecturing the President of the United States on running and hiding was apparently lost on the Senator.
