Eden Prairie Sen. David Hann was chosen by Senate Republicans Friday to be the Senate minority leader for the party in the upcoming state legislative session, the Pioneer Press reported.
It is unclear how many challengers there were for the post. The state Republican House will pick its minority leader Saturday.
The selection of Hann by the Republicans comes a day after the Democrats picked their new leaders as the DFL reacquires control of the House and Senate after losing both chambers in 2010.
Sen. Tom Bakk, DFL-Cook, was chosen as the new Senate Majority Leader, while Erin Murphy, DFL-St. Paul, was picked as House Majority Leader.
Current Minority Leader, Paul Thissen, DFL-Minneapolis, was selected as Speaker of the House.
