Senator says Dayton popped pills in meeting

Email

REDWOOD FALLS, Minn. -- A Republican state senator running for Congress says Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton popped pills during a meeting earlier this year.

Sen. Mike Parry's comments became the talk of the Minnesota political world today, but Dayton said he has learned that as an elected official he will be attacked.

Parry, of Waseca, told a Republican fundraising audience that Dayton took "15 or 16 pills" during a breakfast meeting earlier this year.
