The GOP lost Minnesota’s first congressional district by 2549 votes, Minnesota’s eighth congressional district by 2011 votes, and Minnesota’s seventh district by 16621 votes. Very small margins, given that there are typically about three to four hundred thousand votes in a congressional district.

Had the RNC spent just a bit more money in Minnesota, or had Trump campaigned there a bit more with some representatives, Minnesota’s GOP could easily have gained at least two house seats.
