BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Democratic minority leaders in the North Dakota Legislature will have another two years in those roles.

Grand Forks Sen. Mac Schneider and Parshall Rep. Kenton Onstad were re-elected Sunday night without opposition for the 2015 session. The election came one day before the Legislature began a three-day session for organizational work, which will include issue briefings, computer training and desk assignments.

Lawmakers begin their regular session Jan. 6.

New Rockford Sen. Joan Heckaman was re-elected as the assistant Senate minority leader. Grand Forks Rep. Corey Mock was re-elected as Onstad’s assistant. Heckaman and Mock were also unopposed.

Republicans chose their House and Senate floor leaders last month, re-electing both Dickinson Sen. Rich Wardner and Fargo Rep. Al Carlson, who faced no opposition.

The GOP has two-thirds control in both the North Dakota House and Senate. Republicans hold a 32-15 majority in the Senate and a 71-23 majority in the House.
