Sen. Miller outlines new role as Majority Leader

KSTP – Sen. Jeremy Miller is a Winona man through and through. He was born in the southeastern Minnesota town, graduated from high school there and helps operate the family business: A scrap metal and recycling center.

Now, he’s the most powerful Republican on the state level, tasked with guiding a slim Senate majority that has previously removed two members of the DFL governor’s cabinet, forced another to resign before a removal vote and is charged with redrawing political maps in a process known as redistricting — all headed into a statewide election year.

"There’s no doubt that there will continue to be disagreements. It’s politics," Miller told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. "We live in a democracy; there will always be disagreements. But my focus will be working through those disagreements in a respectful and honorable way that represents who we are as Minnesotans."
