Former Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton announces marriage
December 8, 2020
Former Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton announced on Sunday that he has married.
In a Facebook post, Dayton wrote that after "twenty years of bachelorhood," he has married Ana Orke, now Ana Dayton. At 32, she is more than four decades younger than Dayton, who will turn 74 next month.
Ana Dayton worked for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign during the 2008 primaries and for Dayton's gubernatorial campaign in 2010, according to the post. The two lost touch and then ran into each other a couple of years ago in Minneapolis, and the "rest is happy history," the former governor wrote.
