Dayton is top DFLer in Wadena Fair straw poll

The Wadena County DFL sponsored a straw poll for the DFL governors candidates at their booth at the Wadena County Fair July 29-31.

Eligible voters were asked to choose between the three main candidates running in the DFL primary on Aug. 10.

The poll was conducted without statistical controls and only willing voters actually participated in the survey. Top voter getter was Mark Dayton with 45.9 percent, followed by Matt Entenza with 29.7 percent, and Margaret Anderson-Kelliher, the DFL endorsed candidate, receiving 24.3 percent. The details do not total 100 percent due to rounding.

Wadena County DFL chairman, Melvin Kinnunen reminded all voters of the primary election on Tuesday, Aug. 10.
