Dayton postpones hip surgery for Mondale service

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Gov. Mark Dayton is postponing his hip surgery so he can attend the memorial service for Joan Mondale.

The wife of former Vice President Walter Mondale died Monday at age 83.

Dayton's office had originally said the governor would have the surgery at the Mayo Clinic this week and may be limited in his travel for up to three months.

But Dayton spokesman Bob Hume said Tuesday he postponed it until next week.

It will be the 67-year-old governor's third procedure at the Rochester clinic since taking office, following back surgery in December 2012 and a platelet injection last October to help heal a torn hip muscle.

Joan Mondale's service is scheduled for Saturday in Minneapolis.
