Minnesota voters seemed likely to deliver another two years of divided government in St. Paul as initial results from Tuesday's election showed Republicans retaining a narrow majority in the state Senate and Democrats maintaining control in the state House.

Ballots were still being counted Wednesday with votes outstanding in some key races. Shifting tallies as more votes are processed could still change the balance of power.

But while both sides secured upsets, initial results showed the Senate on track for a status quo finish, with Republicans keeping their 35-32 majority heading into next session.
