Republican senators elect Jeremy Miller as new state Senate majority leader

The Minnesota Senate has a newly-elected majority leader.

Republican senators voted Jeremy Miller into the position overnight Wednesday into Thursday.

Miller was first elected to the state Senate in 2010. He’s served as the president of the Senate since 2019.

Among his priorities, Miller said, is a plan for his party to create a fair and transparent redistricting proposal for the next election.

The appointment of Miller to the position of majority leader follows former Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka’s announcement of his run for governor in 2022.
