DELANO, Minn. -- Mark Dayton promises to work with Republicans and Democrats alike now that he is Minnesota's governor-elect.

"You were elected on your platforms and principles; I was elected on mine," the Democrat said to Republicans who will control the Legislature. "I believe the collective wisdom of the electorate is that they want part of what each of us offers, and they want us to work together to solve the state's budget crisis."
