Minnesota political landscape

I can't really give any predictions on the post of Senate Minority Leader, since the decision has already been made, and in this case, the new boss is the same as the old boss. But as for House Speaker, that is more interesting.

Steve Sviggum oversaw a pretty compelling sweep against his Republican cohorts, and there is speculation that he might be ousted. There is also speculation that nobody else wants the job, so he is safe. Ron Abrams has been mentioned, as has Fran Bradley, but neither seems to be overtly interested in the job, nor is there any indication that they would have support from the Republican caucus. At this point, it seems that Sviggum will keep his position.

As for majority leader, that may be a different story. Erik Paulsen may not last too much longer. I have no idea who would replace him, however. I think the Republicans will be meeting on Saturday, so everything will be clear then.
