ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A national Republican group is promising "significant" spending to support Minnesota Republicans' effort to retake the state House.
The Republican State Legislative Committee spent more than $600,000 here two years ago, when the GOP lost control of both chambers.
The group's president, Matt Walter, wouldn't say how much they'll spend this time around. But he did talk about strategy in a conference call with reporters. He said one talking point will be a new Senate office building that state Republicans have already portrayed as overspending by Democrats.
The GOP needs to pick up seven seats to take control of the House.
State senators are not up for re-election until 2016. The DFL has an 11-seat edge in the Senate.
