Democrats outspent Republicans more than 2-to-1 in the battle for control of the Minnesota Legislature but still came up short.

Campaign spending reports show Democratic candidates and outside groups spent more than $16 million in their unsuccessful attempt to retake control of the Senate. Republicans spent just $7.7 million defending their one-vote majority.
