Gov. Dayton to deliver State of the State Address Wednesday

April 30, 2014 Updated Apr 30, 2014 at 4:46 PM CST

St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Governor Mark Dayton is set to deliver his fourth State of the State address Wednesday night, albeit a bit later than usual.

Typically the Governor delivers his speech at the state of the legislative session, but according to his office, his February hip surgery caused the delay.

Governor Dayton is expected to touch on several victories reached this year, including increasing the state's minimum wage and passage of the Safe and Supportive Schools Act.

Republican leaders believe tonight's remarks will be used more as a campaign speech then a typical State of the State.

The address gets underway at 7 p.m Wednesday.
