Former Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton announces marriage [View all]

Former Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton announced on Sunday that he has married.

In a Facebook post, Dayton wrote that after “twenty years of bachelorhood,” he has married Ana Orke, now Ana Dayton. At 32, she is more than four decades younger than Dayton, who will turn 74 next month.

Ana Dayton worked for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign during the 2008 primaries and for Dayton’s gubernatorial campaign in 2010, according to the post. The two lost touch and then ran into each other a couple of years ago in Minneapolis, and the “rest is happy history,” the former governor wrote.

The post acknowledged the age difference: “The truth is, the feelings that developed between Ana and me, given our age difference, surprised us too, at first. But as we grew to know each other, we realized that the love binding us is far deeper and more meaningful than the years that separate us.”
