GOP names more House leaders; Hamilton is majority whip

The new House GOP majority has named more of its leaders, with Rep. Rod Hamilton of Mountain Lake named majority whip.

Assistant majority leaders are:

  • Joe Hoppe of Chaska
  • Jenifer Loon of Eden Prairie
  • Bob Gunther of Fairmont
  • Paul Torkelson of Watonwan County.

The 31 freshman Republicans coming to St. Paul for the first time in January will select one of their own to be the final assistant majority leader.

Last month, Rep. Kurt Zellers of Maple Grove was elected speaker of the House, and Rep. Matt Dean of Dellwood was chosen to be House majority leader.
