Lt. Governor Not Running Again 15 Jan 14

Minnesota Lieutenant Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon announced Tuesday that she will not seek re-election as Governor Dayton’s running mate this fall. She says it’s a decision she’s given “much thought, much reflection and an equal dose of prayer.” She says she expected to be more involved in the Dayton administration’s policy initiatives, and found ways to do that by working on initiatives for seniors and Minnesotans with disabilities, plus nutrition and education issues.  Prettner Solon says by doing those things, quote, “I found a way to fill that void.”   When asked if Governor Dayton ever asked her to stay on for a second term, Prettner Solon flatly said “no.”
