Dems flip Minnesota House, GOP keeps Senate

Minneapolis, Minn. (AP) Democrats have flipped control of the Minnesota state House, but Republicans have held on to a narrow Senate majority.

Democrats had needed to flip 11 seats to take control of the Minnesota House in Tuesday's elections. Republican House Speaker Kurt Daudt conceded that the GOP would lose the majority that it held since 2015.

Minnesota's Senate seats were not up for a regular election. But there was one special election to fill a vacancy, and Republicans held on to that seat to maintain a 34-33 majority in that chamber.

The national Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee says Democrats picked up scores of state legislative seats across the country in Tuesday's elections.
