Some intriguing details in area election results:
Gov. Dayton helped push Destination Medical Center through the Legislature and into law, but that apparently wasn't enough for him to carry Olmsted County. Republican Jeff Johnson won Olmsted, 49.6 percent to 45.2 percent.
Johnson carried Dodge, Goodhue and Fillmore as well. Dayton carried the bluer counties of Mower and Winona, and narrowly took Houston County.
Despite Johnson's win in Olmsted, Franken prevailed over McFadden in the county, as did Walz.
