Johnson Wishes Dayton Well After Falling Short

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Republican gubernatorial candidate Jeff Johnson says he's wishing the victor, Democratic incumbent Mark Dayton, success because he wants Minnesota to succeed.

Johnson lost his bid Tuesday to oust Dayton after a single term.

The GOP nominee says he worked his tail off in the race. He told voters that Dayton had become too detached from his duties and that he would make for a more engaged chief executive.

The Hennepin County commissioner now returns to the governing board of the state's most populous county.

It is Johnson's second statewide loss, having been defeated in the 2006 attorney general's race.
