Minn. GOP: Mark Dayton's 'too risky'

The Republican party of Minnesota isn't wasting any time. Less than 24 hours after former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton's primary victory Tuesday night, they've released a new ad calling Dayton, "absolutely, positively one of the worst Senators" in America," citing a TIME Magazine spread that listed Dayton among the Senate's "worst."

A recovering alcoholic, last year Dayton acknowledged he had relapsed in 2006 and suffered from "mild depression." Dayton faces state Rep. Tom Emmer (R) in November.

Mark Dayton was one of the worst senators, and now he imagines that he is more suited to be a governor. The question is, could he run a lemonade stand or handle a paper route?
