State Senate Remains in GOP Hands, DFL Still in Control of House
It appears the Minnesota Senate will remain in Republican hands and the state House in DFL control.
In the Lakeland viewing area, it was a Republican sweep:
- Matthew Grossell takes House 2A over Jeremiah Liend with 62% of the vote.
- Steve Green wins House 2B over David Suby with 66% of the vote.
- Paul Utke heads back to the Senate in District 2 with 65% of the vote, beating Leonard Alan Roy.
- And a Republican will remain in the 5B seat as Spencer Igo earns 61% of the vote to beat Joe Abeyta. Igo will succeed Republican Sandy Layman, who did not seek re-election.
