Marty Seifert has been re-elected as minority leader of the Minnesota House Republicans.
Seifert, of Marshall, will get two more years at the helm. He was challenged by his former deputy, Rep. Tom Emmer of Delano.
Republicans head into the next session with 47 seats, although two recounts are pending. Republicans are coming off a third consecutive election with seat losses.
Democrats who control the House say they will stick with Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher of Minneapolis and Majority Leader Tony Sertich of Chisholm. The DFL majority now sits at 87 of the 134 House seats.
