ST. PAUL — A few dozen “Black Lives Matter” demonstrators have rallied outside Gov. Mark Dayton’s home.

The protesters wanted an apology from Dayton, but his spokesman says the governor had off-site meetings scheduled in the afternoon and would not be home when the protesters arrived.

Dayton last week called the group’s plans to protest outside the Minnesota State Fair “inappropriate.” A crowd estimated by police of up to 350 marched outside the fair on Saturday, but no injuries or arrests were reported.
