Dayton is Dr. No.
Wasting no time after the Legislature adjourned without reaching a compromise with him over the state's fiscal mess, Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed all nine Republican budget bills passed in the waning hours of the session.

In doing so, he reminded GOP leaders that he too had the backing of voters.

"In November, Minnesotans voted for a divided government," Dayton said in a statement accompanying the vetoes. "Compromise is never easy, because each person must give up something that is important."
