Governor Tim Pawlenty, and Governor-Elect Mark Dayton hold a jovial joint press conference. They avoid any policy conflicts they may have had. The biggest one they could think of, was their dogs.

The two agreed that they both like Tom Sorel as Minnesota’s Transportation Commissioner. Dayton announced today that Sorel will be staying on as the head of MN DOT.

As far as other appointments, Dayton said several DFL lawmakers are among the many people who have applied for the jobs. He also indicated he expects to name his Chief Of Staff on Friday.
