Minnesota Legislators Who have Served in Both the House and the Senate

Compiled by the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library

This list includes legislators who have served both in the Minnesota House and Senate since statehood. The table defaults to all years, but you can limit the results to more recent years by using the dropdown menu.

Use the link above the table to switch from the "House to Senate" list to the "Senate to House" list. Some legislators will appear on both lists, like William Henry Carman Folsom, who made the switch back and forth more than once.
