U.S. Senate

Republican Ron Johnson is seeking a third term. He faces a minor primary challenge. On the Democratic side, Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes is expected to be the nominee after all his prominent opponents withdrew and endorsed him in the closing weeks of the campaign. Those candidates - State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski, Milwaukee Bucks executive Alex Lasry, and Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson - remain on the ballot.

Looking ahead to November, Barnes led Johnson by two points, well within the margin of error, in a late June Marquette poll.


Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has no primary opposition as he seeks a second term.

There are four Republicans vying for the nomination, the frontrunners are former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and businessman Tim Michels. The wealthy Michels was a late entrant to the race in April, spending heavily via self-funding. He also won the endorsement of Trump. 

The primary looks like a true toss-up. The two recent public polls were well within the margin of error.

U.S. House

These primaries will take place using redistricted boundaries.

District Party Comments
3 D Democrat Ron Kind is retiring after narrowly winning a 13th term in 2020 against Derrick Van Orden, a retired Navy SEAL. Van Orden is unopposed for the GOP nomination. Four Democrats are looking to replace Kind. Most forecasters rate the general election 'Leans Republican', making Van Orden a slight favorite to flip the district as the general election gets underway.
