Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton collapsed during his annual State of the State address Monday night in St. Paul.
The governor’s office said that Monday night that Gov.Dayton had simply fainted after having spoken while standing for more than 40 minutes. He quickly recovered and walked out of the Capitol under his own power.
Dayton underwent a routine medical check and was at home Monday night, according to the statement, which said the governor would resume his full schedule on Tuesday.
Eric Dayton, the governor’s son, said on Twitter afterward that his father is “doing great.”
I'm with my dad now and he's doing great. Thank you all for your kind well-wishes and words of concern.
