GOP takes over Minn. Senate after nearly 40 years
MINNEAPOLIS - Republicans have roared into the majority in the Minnesota Senate after nearly 40 years in the minority.
GOP challengers snatched 16 seats from Democrats to gain a seven-vote advantage. They will control the chamber 37-30.
It's a stunning turnaround for a caucus that faced a veto-proof Democratic majority for the past two years.
