Minnesota Democrats failed to gain the five House seats they needed to win a veto-proof majority in both chambers.
House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher said that, even with a smattering of legislative races still hanging in the balance, DFLers would fall short of gaining the five seats necessary for a 90-vote, veto-proof majority. "I think, honestly, it appears it's a gain of two overall," Kelliher said shortly before 2 a.m. She said there was an outside chance DFLers would gain a third seat when the final ballots were tallied.
"We're kind of swapping seats," said House Minority Leader Marty Seifert. "I think it will be impossible for them to get the 90 votes to override the governor's veto."
Still, when you recall they only took the House back a couple of years ago, they're doing pretty well.
