MURDOCK -- DFL State Representative Andrew Falk is headed back to St. Paul for a third term.

Miller was making his first bid for state office and faced an uphill battle against the incumbent Falk. Re-districting left much of Falk's original, rural district intact.

District 17A includes all of Chippewa and Swift counties, most of Renville County and the southwestern corner of Kandiyohi County.
