House DFL again chooses Hortman as speaker; Republicans continue with Daudt 

Capitol Evening

House DFLers selected current House Speaker Melissa Hortman (DFL-Brooklyn Park) to continue in her post when the 92nd legislative session begins in January during a caucus meeting Nov. 5.

Hortman, elected to her ninth term on Election Day, will preside over a House controlled by a narrower DFL majority.

“I am honored to have the support of my colleagues to continue serving as Speaker of the House,” she said in a statement. “After being elected to another two-year majority, House Democrats are ready to continue our efforts to build a Minnesota that works better for everyone.”

And on the other side of the aisle, House Republicans also voted for continuity, re-electing House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt (R-Crown) Nov. 6 to lead their caucus during the upcoming biennium. Read more at Session Daily
