ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota's new legislative district maps pit 46 incumbents against each other and create 23 open seats.
The new House district maps released Tuesday pair 30 incumbents against each other and create 15 open seats. The new maps also pit 16 Senate incumbents against each other and create eight open Senate seats.
The House gets six districts with two incumbent Republicans, six with two incumbent Democrats, plus three Democrat-versus-Republican pairings.
The Senate gets four districts with two incumbent Republicans, two with two Democratic incumbents, and two Democrat-on-Republican conflicts.
Some notable pairings include House Republican Majority Leader Matt Dean of Dellwood against GOP Rep. Carol McFarlane of White Bear Lake, and eight-term Democratic Sen. John Marty of Roseville against freshman Democrat Mary Jo McGuire of Falcon Heights.
