Wisconsin Primary Results

August 13, 2014

** UPDATE:  August 14 -   The AP has withdrawn its declaration of Glenn Grothman as winner in the 6th District.   Grothman leads by just 214 votes as of Thursday AM.   

The Wisconsin nominating primaries for the 2014 election were held on Tuesday, August 12.   There were no major surprises in the gubernatorial or House primaries.

Governor:   Governor Scott Walker ran uncontested and will face businesswoman Mary Burke in November. Although Walker is seen as a potential contender for the 2016 Republican nomination, getting re-elected is not going to be a cakewalk.   Polling shows the race to be tied and the professional pundits generally show the race to be a toss-up.

US House:   All vote totals can be seen here.   The only marginally competitive race is in the 6th District, where incumbent Republican Thomas Petri is retiring.   State Senator Glenn Grothman narrowly defeated fellow Senateor Joe Leibham for the nomination.   On the Democratic side, Winnebago County Excecutive Mark Harris ran unopposed.    The District will likely stay in Republican hands.  All other incumbents are expected to win re-election in November.
