Dayton’s message cut short by collapse during State of State address
Gov. Mark Dayton slurred his words and fainted briefly near the end of a 45-minute State of the State speech Monday night at the Capitol.
Several people nearby, including Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, caught him as he lurched forward, struck his forehead on the lectern and then sank toward the floor in the House chambers in St. Paul.
