While metro races will be front and center in the contest for the House, other Greater Minnesota regions could make a big difference in the Senate, where Democrats hold 31 seats. Historic Democratic strongholds in northeast Minnesota’s Iron Range appear to be leaning more toward Republicans, and population centers like Rochester have started to lean more Democratic as they grow and change demographically.
ABOUT THIS RACE: In an unusual twist, the every-10-years redrawing of legislative boundaries has resulted in incumbent legislators facing each other to represent the new Minnesota House District 7A. The candidates are Republican Rep. Spencer Igo of Wabana Township and DFL Rep. Julie Sandstede of Hibbing. The new district encompasses parts of Aitkin, Itasca, and St. Louis counties. Election Day is Nov. 8. Early voting starts Friday.
