Democrats in Minnesota can take heart that the Republican takeover of the state senate and house might be short-lived: Turns out that every seat will be up for election in two years. Minnesota law states that new elections for all seats take place two years following redistricing that follows every election year that ends in a zero. Combine that with news that a mere 700 strategically placed votes for the Minnesota House would have shifted control to the Democrats and the Republican takeover loses a little sheen.
