ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Gov. Mark Dayton and a trio of federal elected officials are heading to areas of southern Minnesota where a spring snow and ice storm hit the hardest.
The group is making three stops Saturday, starting in Worthington before heading to Luverne and ending in Hills.
Southern Minnesota got the worst of an April snow storm that plowed through the Midwest this week. An ice storm knocked out power to thousands of people and wet snow fell on top of the thick layer of ice.
Dayton will be joined by three fellow Democrats--Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken and Representative Tim Walz.
