Who Did Voters Choose in Tuesday's Primaries?
On Tuesday night, primary voters in Wisconsin, Connecticut, Minnesota and Vermont went to the polls to determine several contested races that may sway control of Congress in November.
Former President Donald Trump endorsed candidates who saw victories in their primaries in Wisconsin and Connecticut, but the main test of Trump's endorsement will come in November's general election as candidates seek to win over swing voters.
In Wisconsin, Trump's pick of Tim Michels won his primary race for governor last night. In Vermont, Becca Balint won the Democratic primary for the at-large House seat, and is set to be the first female and openly gay lawmaker to represent that state on Capitol Hill. In Connecticut, Republican National Commttee member Leora Levy won her GOP Senate primary race after being endorsed by Trump - she will face Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal in November. And in Minnesota, progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar narrowly defeated former Minneapolis City Councilman Don Samuels in their House primary.
News outlets across the political spectrum continue to focus on the performance of Trump-backed candidates in the 2022 primaries.
