Analyzing GOP victories in Minnesotaby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
We still don't know who will be Minnesota's next governor. With 100 percent of the precincts counted, DFLer Mark Dayton leads Republican Tom Emmer by 9,057 votes. A recount is likely. Meanwhile, 18-term DFL Congressman Jim Oberstar has been defeated by Republican Chip Cravaack in the the 8th district. All the other incumbent members of Minnesota's congressional delegation were re-elected. And Republicans have taken control of both the Minnesota House and Senate.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Larry Jacobs who's a political science professor at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute.
