Republicans in the Minnesota Senate hoping to hold onto their majority likely picked up two seats they previously didn't hold – but also might be looking at giving up two seats they had heading into Tuesday.

Sen. Matt Little, DFL-Lakeville, will likely lose his seat to Republican challenger Zach Duckworth. Little was trailing by 12 points early Wednesday morning. Meanwhile, neighboring State Sen. Greg Clausen, DFL-Apple Valley, was trailing by 2 points, or about 1,093 votes to Jose Jiminez, a Republican.
