Dayton Earned Considerably More Money in the Last Year

Gov. Mark Dayton made $671,724 last year, which is far more than what he made the previous year, which was a reported $172,472 according to The Republic.

The Star Tribune reports that these figures are the earnings he recieved from his investments.

Dayton released his tax information at a time when he was pushing for a proposal to raise taxes for the higest earners in Minnesota. He falls into that category, according to the Star Tribune.

Included in the $671,742 that he earned last year, was $407,665 from selling 8,431 shares of stock in the Target Corporation, The Republic reported.

According to the Star Tribune, these shares were purchased in August, 1930.
