'Hopefully We Can Govern Together': Minnesota Is Only State With Divided Legislature
By ABC 5
Something unique happened in Minnesota on election night.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Minnesota will be the only state in the nation where the legislature is divided. The Senate remains in Republican control, but the House flipped to the Democrats. The last time there was only one divided state legislature was over 100 years ago in 1914.
There are 134 seats in the state House. When the next session begins in January, DFLers will have a 75-59 majority. In the 67-seat state Senate, Republicans will keep control with a slim 34-33 majority.
