Kyle Potter - January 2017
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton revealed his prostate cancer diagnosis on Tuesday, hours after collapsing during the delivery of his State of Address on Monday night. Dayton tried to keep the incident light, saying it was a brief episode and joking, "had I known it would result in Republicans not criticizing my speech, I might have tried it years ago!"
Dayton was informed of his diagnosis on the Friday prior, following a biopsy, and had planned to reveal his diagnosis to constituents following his consultation the next week. Doctors have suggested it was caught early and would likely be treated with surgery or radiation.
When asked whether he still felt up to the job, Dayton said "I think I am. If I don't, I won't continue. I take it very seriously. I have an obligation to all of the people of Minnesota."
