Gov. Mark Dayton was released from Regions Hospital in St. Paul Monday afternoon after fainting during an event for a state representative's campaign in Woodbury Sunday.
Senior Advisor Bob Hume said Dayton was released from the hospital after having been treated for dehydration. He is expected to resume a normal schedule Tuesday.
On Sunday, Dayton's Chief of Staff Jaime Tincher said Dayton was transported to the hospital after feeling pressure in his lower back and temporarily losing consciousness.
The 69-year-old Dayton remained at the hospital overnight for observation as a precaution.
Dayton underwent elective lower back surgery in December. His office said at the time that the procedure was similar to one he had three years ago, which fused two vertebrae in his lower back. He also had had hip surgery in 2014.
