Range Senators leave DFL caucus

Veteran Iron Range Senators Tom Bakk and David Tomassoni have decided to leave the DFL Caucus in the Minnesota Senate and act as independents. Until early 2020 Bakk had led Senate Democrats for nine years, but lost that post in an internal caucus vote to Sen. Susan Kent of Woodbury. Only last week the GOP-controlled Senate elected Tomassoni as president, and both of the newly-independent senators have been promised they can chair a committee.
