The Kellihers claimed $2,810 in charitable donations last year, including $1,400 to Basilica of St. Mary, $200 to Minneapolis public schools and $150 to MPR. In total, that's about $24,000 less than Dayton donated in 2009.
Kelliher's campaign released the records just hours after Dayton's campaign. In a statement, Kelliher said she would release her tax records annually if elected governor.
"Minnesotans should know how their Governor earns a living," said Kelliher in the statement. "This is a basic disclosure all candidates for Governor should be willing to make voluntarily."
Matt Entenza's campaign spokesman said yesterday that they had no plans to release Entenza's tax records.
