Race for MN Senate District 3: Hauschild beats Zupancich

Longtime Senator Tom Bakk decided to retire, leaving a big vacancy for the Northland in the Minnesota legislature. Senate District 3 covers portions of five different counties.

Democrat Grant Hauschild, of Hermantown, will now represent District 3. He’s currently on the city council, and was endorsed by many of the unions and current leaders in the Northland.

Babbitt’s mayor Andrea Zupancich threw her hat in the ring. Running as a Republican, she has Bakk’s endorsement. The mom of four and small business owner is part of several pro-mining organizations.
