Congressional candidates Kendall Qualls and Tyler Kistner listened backstage as Jason Lewis spoke to the crowd at the election night party at the DoubleTree Hotel in Bloomington.

A major investment by the Trump campaign that fueled unprecedented get-out-the-vote efforts in Minnesota was not enough to turn the state red, leaving conservative activists and GOP operatives wondering how to recapture political relevance at the statewide level.

While Republicans made gains in some suburban and rural legislative districts, they lost both of the election's statewide races - for the White House and the U.S. Senate - by decisive margins.

"If you're going to win at the top of the ticket, you're never going to do it with the candidates we've been putting up," said Amy Koch, a GOP strategist.
