Two special elections for state House seats — in Districts 14A and 19A — will be held Feb. 12, Gov. Mark Dayton announced.
Voters will choose replacements for state Rep. Steve Gottwalt, a Republican from 14A in the St. Cloud area, who took a lobbying job, and state Rep. Terry Morrow, a DFLer from 19A in the Mankato area, who is taking a job in Chicago.
If needed, primaries for the two races will be Jan. 29.
