Murdock cruises to victory in House 10B race, GOP in control
Tuesday was a great night for Rep. Mark Murdock, R-Ottertail, for a few reasons.
Not only did he easily win re-election over challenger Pete Phillips, DFL-Wadena, his party not only swept into power in the Minnesota House, but in the Senate, where they haven't had the gavel since 1972.
Murdock beat Phillips 10,371 votes to 5,258, a nearly 2-to-1 ratio. The early vote totals showed Murdock was winning easily.
