Better late than never

Hell has frozen. No, the Vikings didn’t win the Super Bowl, but it’s almost equally as impressive. Senate Majority Leader Dean Johnson apologized for the shutdown he and his DFL colleagues caused.

“It wasn’t pretty and I apologize to anyone who may have been harmed by the shutdown but the product we ended with will be good for all Minnesotans,” said Johnson on a tour of his district Friday morning after a difficult special budgeting session in St. Paul.

There appears to be ulterior motives here, as Johnson is listed as a potential DFL candidate for governor.
