Minnesota Senate Republicans today elected Sen. Paul Gazelka, R-Nisswa, to the role of assistant minority leader. He joins Sen. Michelle Benson, R-Ham Lake, Sen. Gary Dahms, R-Redwood Falls, and Sen. Warren Limmer, R-Maple Grove, as assistant minority leaders. Sen. David Hann, R-Eden Prairie, will once again serve as the Senate Republican leader.

"I am honored to have once again been chosen to help lead the Senate Republican Caucus,"Gazelka. "Minnesotans are facing a number of serious challenges, including soaring health care costs, rising prices for goods and services, roads in disrepair, and a growing tax burden. In the next biennium, Senate Republicans will address these challenges head-on. We will continue to focus on reforms that help all Minnesota families: prioritizing roads and bridges, holding the line on taxes, and making sure every student receives a great education.

"I look forward to working closely with Governor Dayton, Sen. Bakk, and the Republican speaker of the House to move Minnesota forward," Senator Gazelka continued. "Our agenda will likely be quite different from the governor's, but we all want what is best for Minnesota families."

Gazelka represents Morrison, Wadena, Todd and part of Cass Counties. He was first elected to the Minnesota Senate in 2010 and re-elected to his second term in 2012.
