House Minority Leader
The top Republican in the Minnesota House was detained by Montana authorities last September when a deal to buy an antique truck soured and a friend accompanying him displayed the lawmaker’s gun, according to just-surfacing court records and a statement issued Friday. Rep. Kurt Daudt, the House minority leader, was briefly placed in handcuffs, and his friend was arrested and charged.
Minnesota House Republicans have picked Rep. Kurt Daudt as their new minority leader.
