Leon Lillie (D) will be representing Houst District 43B, according to unofficial results from the Minnesota Secretary of State.
Lillie beat challenger Kevin Klein (R) with 12,445 votes (60 percent) while Klein received 8,111 votes (39 percent).
All 12 precincts reported their numbers just before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. All results are unofficial until verified by a canvassing board.
Oakdale Patch reached out to both Lillie and Klein for statements early Wednesday morning regarding the results:
"The voters have spoken on a local, state and national level. An honest self examination of all involved parties is definitely needed at this time. May we all have 'open eyes' as we perform our self evaluations and as we contemplate the ramifications of the election results."
