Dayton appoints Democrat Paul Thissen for MN Supreme Court. That makes 5 Dayton picks on 7-member court.

Gov. Mark Dayton appointed state Rep. Paul Thissen, a fellow Democrat, to the Minnesota Supreme Court Tuesday.

The choice of a strident partisan politician — Thissen often clashed with Republicans during stints as House speaker and minority leader — for the high court is uncommon in recent years but hardly unprecedented, as a number of politicians have been appointed to the court by governors of both parties over the years.
