Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton said Friday his support for allowing child care workers to unionize was not “payback” to union supporters, just as his opponent’s support of tax cuts is not payback to wealthy donors. Dayton's opponent, Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson, said Thursday that Dayton's support for allowing child care workers to unionize in the state was "political payback" for union support of Dayton during the 2010 election. Johnson made the remarks during a press conference in front of Dayton's offices in St. Paul, according to the Star Tribune. However, Dayton in a visit to the Bemidji Pioneer on Friday said that Johnson's assertion was "really inappropriate." He compared Johnson's claim to if he were to accuse Johnson of being beholden to wealthy people.
