DFL Senate Now Veto Proof

Burried in the news is the elecion here in Minnesota.
A January 3rd special election resulted in another DFL pickup.
District 25 (Northfield- South of the Metro) had a special election to fill a vacant seat left by a Republican leaving the legislature. This now put the DFL over the top in the Senate for a 2/3rds majority.
Kevin Dahle won with 55.52% of the vote with 100% of the precincts are reporting.
If you are keeping track that means the Minnesota Senate is 45 DFL 22 GOP.
Why this isn't a bigger story in the rest of the MN media is a mystery.
