Minnesota Primary Results

August 13, 2014

The Minnesota nominating primaries for the November election were held on August 12.

US Senate:    Democratic incumbent Al Franken fought off nominal opposition and will face businessman Mike McFadden in November.   McFadden, the Republican party's preferred choice,  easily defeated Jim Abeler.  Franken is favored for re-election, although the race is somewhat competitive.

Governor:   As expected, incumbent Democrat Mark Dayton was easily renominated.   The Republican primary was quite competitive, with four candidates earning over 20% of the vote.  State Representative Jeff Johnson emerged victorious here.   Governor Dayton is favored for re-election, with most polls to this point giving him a 10% or greater advantage.  

US House:   All vote totals can be seen here.    Minnesota's Congressional delegation is currently comprised of 5 Democrats and 3 Republicans.   All but Michele Bachmann (MN-06) are running for re-election, and all won renomination.   Two Democratic-held Districts (MN-07, MN-08) as well as one Republican District (MN-02) are expected to be competitive this November.
