The agenda was clear on the Minnesota Senate website: "Governor Mark Dayton and legislative leaders attend a media forum, moderated by Forum News Service's Don Davis, to preview the 2018 legislative session."
The headlines and copy generated by the event seem to document a peaceable kingdom that erased partisan lines. At the Pioneer Press Christopher Magan reports Minnesota’s top political leaders pose for selfie, promise to get along. Will they?.
In the Duluth News Tribune:Dayton, legislative leaders: We get along just fine, thanks.
At least the Strib reports Lawsuits loom over next week's start of legislative session.
Here's the video of the press event (click and it will appear):
