ELECTION HIGHLIGHTS, MEET THE CANDIDATES

Each state has some closely watched races that could have significant statewide and national impacts.

In Minnesota, the Northland has all eyes on the 8th Congressional District race. However, the Gopher State is also choosing a new Governor and Lieutenant Governor, two U.S. Senators, and a state Attorney General.

In Duluth, the city’s public school system is asking voters to increase its levy, which would bring benefits to students but also raise taxes for the city’s homeowners.

Meanwhile, it’s the neck-and-neck race for Governor topping the Election Day headlines in Wisconsin. Voters there will also decide if a blue U.S. Senate seat will flip red and who will represent the 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House.
