ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Dave Senjem has filled out his leadership team with two committee chairmen.

The Rochester Republican Tuesday appointed Sen. Julianne Ortman of Chanhassen as deputy leader and Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen of Alexandria as the fifth assistant majority leader.


Ingebrigtsen had considered running for majority leader last week to keep rural issues at the forefront. But he was not nominated.
