Minn.'s Dayton meets No. 2 about fall ballot plan

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota Lieutenant Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon says she will announce her political plans later today. Prettner Solon met with Governor Mark Dayton in a closed-door session Monday about whether she'll join him in a re-election run.

She was wavering about whether to seek a new term along with Dayton.

She said last week she arrived at a decision but wouldn't disclose it before meeting with Dayton. The governor has refused to address the topic as long as Solon's decision was in limbo. Prettner Solon has scheduled a news conference for Tuesday. In 2010, the former state senator from Duluth was picked by then-Democratic candidate Mark Dayton to fill out his eventually successful ticket.

In her term, she has led a task force on Capitol security and initiatives concentrating on senior citizens.
