Sparse turnout expected in Tuesday’s primary election
Minnesota voters will set the stage for an array of political races when they cast their ballot on Tuesday. Secretary of State Mark Ritchie told the Red Wing Republican Eagle that primary turnout will be low, despite the closely watched primaries in the 1st and 8th Congressional Districts.
In Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District, Republicans Mike Parry and Allen Quist are fighting to challenge incumbent Congressman Tim Walz.
Tarryl Clark, Rick Nolan and Jeff Anderson face each other in a three-way Democratic primary in the 8th District to take on GOP incumbent U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack.
