Governor Mark Dayton undergoes prostate cancer surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester this morning. Dayton says he plans to leave the hospital Saturday and adds, “I’m gonna be back at work on Monday. Whether I’m physically here [at the Capitol] or at the [Governor’s] Residence, I’m back to work on Monday.” Dayton received the diagnosis in January and had the option of either surgery or radiation treatment. He says doctors told him the cancer has not spread and is treatable and curable — “as good news as you can get with that kind of diagnosis,” he said.
