Posted by: Abby Simons under Minnesota campaigns, Republicans Updated: May 31, 2014 - 1:32 AM

The two remaining U.S. Senate contenders for the GOP endorsement will continue on to Round 7 after neither candidate achieved the necessary 60 percent of votes from delegates.

Here are your numbers:

Chris Dahlberg: 992 votes, 53.6 percent

Mike McFadden: 823 votes, 44.5 percent

More than 300 delegates did not cast a vote.

At least one delegate asked to close the convention without an endorsement, but that can be considered only after 10 ballots.

On to Round 7.
