Forty states have now chosen nominees as voters in Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont, and Wisconsin went to the polls yesterday. Competitive Governors races will occur in Connecticut (Democrat Ned Lamont vs. Republican Bob Stefanowski), Minnesota (Democrat Tim Walz vs. Republican Jeff Johnson), Vermont (Gov. Phil Scott (R) vs. Democrat Christine Hallquist), and Wisconsin (Gov. Scott Walker (R) vs. Democrat Tony Evers).
The key Senate contests coming from yesterday’s votes are in Minnesota (Sen. Tina Smith (D) vs. Republican Karin Housley) and Wisconsin (Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D) vs. Republican Leah Vukmir).
The major story came from Minnesota where former two-term Gov. Tim Pawlenty lost his comeback bid in a Republican primary loss to 2014 gubernatorial nominee Jeff Johnson.
Today, voters in another four states go to the polls: Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont, and Wisconsin. We will provide coverage of the results tomorrow. The most interesting races are the Minnesota Governor’s campaign and several of the state’s congressional races. The Wisconsin Senator and Governor’s contest will also draw major attention.
