Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - In Minnesota's District 4 Senate race, Democrat Kent Eken beat Republican Phil Hansen.

The final tally: Eken wins 52 to 48 percent over the former Buffalo Bills star.

Kelsey Roseth: “Congratualtions on your win. This was a close race, how are you feeling right now. What's going through your head?"

Kent Eken, (DFL) Won Dist. 4 State Senate Seat: “Well, we're feeling very good about the campaign. And I was feeling very good about the campaign before the results started coming in. We worked the campaign very hard. We were out door-knocking constantly. I door-knocked the whole district once over and started doing it a second-time through. So, I met a lot of people, went to all the events, all the parades, all the fairs, and I think that's what made the difference in the end. It was a lot of hard work. Not just me, but the people who volunteered for me, my friends, my family, my children, and my wife, of course who is the biggest part of the operation. Being my manager, my treasurer, she has done so much. So it really takes a team effort and that gave me the edge, in addition to all that hard work.”
