Lyle Koenen sworn in as District 20 senator
Lyle Koenen took the oath to become a Minnesota state senator Wednesday, taking the seat vacated with the death of veteran lawmaker Gary Kubly.
"Welcome Lyle Koenen, welcome aboard," Senate Majority Leader Dave Senjem, R-Rochester, said shortly after the Senate went into session.
Sitting at Kubly's old desk, Koenen stood and accepted applause from his new colleagues.
