Wadena County had only a fraction of its vote in. With six of 24 precincts reporting, Murdock led Phillips 615-331.

The former Wadena City Council member and DFL challenger conceded the race to Murdock.

"I want to thank everyone for supporting me," Phillips said. "We ran a good race and would not change a thing. Mark Murdock ran a good race too and I wish him well."
