UPDATED: Masin Defeats Walden in 51A, Kline Captures Majority in Congressional District

Sandy Masin carried roughly 88 percent of the vote in House District 51A against challenger Milton Walden. Rep. John Kline also swept the Second Congressional District.

 There were no surprises in local Primary Elections on Tuesday night, as Democrat Sandy Masin swept away her little-known challenger Milton Walden and Rep. John Kline (R) dismantled the opposition in the Second Congressional District race.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar easily won the U.S. Senate DFL Primary. She will face Republican-endorsed Kurt Bills, whose Primary was a bit closer than pundits expected. With 99.1 percent of precincts reporting Wednesday morning, Bills led David Carlson roughly 51 percent to 35 percent. Stephen Williams advanced in the Independence Party Primary.

In the Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice race, incumbent Lorie Skjerven Gildea along with Dan Griffith will move forward to the General Election. Skjerven Gildea received nearly 50 percent of the votes, Griffith received about 29 percent of the votes. Jill Clark came in third with approximately 21 percent of the votes.

In the Minnesota Supreme Court Associate Chief Justice Seat 4 race, incumbent David Stras as well as Tim Tingelstad will move forward to the General Election. David Stras received about 49 percent of the votes, Tingelstad received approximately 29 percent of the votes. Alan Nelson came in third with about 22 percent of the vote.
