Here are the latest updates for Minnesota's 3rd Congressional District race:

  • As of 8:46 p.m., the Associated Press declares that Dean Phillips has won reelection to the U.S. House in the Third Congressional District in Minnesota. As of 10 p.m., Phillips held 55.6% of the vote.

Dean Phillips released the following statement Tuesday night: 

"Tonight, our community chose optimism over fear, conversation over chaos, and decency over division. This is the best job I have ever had, and I am honored to have the opportunity to represent such a civically-engaged district for another two years. 

"We won this election not by destroying my opponent, but by extending invitations -- to everybody. I share with this community a pragmatic head, a progressive heart, and the belief that the United States will not live up to its potential and promise until every American is afforded equal opportunity and equal justice under the law.
