WASHINGTON - [size=-1] A Democratic senator said Tuesday he has closed his Washington office because a top-secret intelligence report made him fear for his staff's safety. Federal law enforcement officials insisted there is no new intelligence indicating the Capitol complex is a target.

[size=-1] Sen. Mark Dayton (news, bio, voting record), D-Minn., said his office will be closed while Congress is in recess through Election Day, with his staff working out of his Minnesota office and in Senate space off Capitol Hill. [/size]

[size=-1] "I take this step out of extreme, but necessary, precaution to protect the lives and safety of my Senate staff and my Minnesota constituents, who might otherwise be visiting my Senate office in the next three weeks," said Dayton, whose office in the Russell Senate Office Building is across the street from the Capitol.

[size=-1] Dayton said he could not give details of the classified intelligence report, which he said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., presented to senators at a briefing two weeks ago.
