Wisconsin primary election results 2010: Tom Barrett and Ron Johnson win primaries
The Associated Press has called the Democratic gubernatorial primary in Wisconsin for Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett. Meamwhile, Republican Ron Johnson has won his party's Senate primary and will face Sen. Russ Feingold (D) in November.
Dinesh Ramde reported:
Ron Johnson crushed small-business owner Dave Westlake in Tuesday's Republican primary. Johnson had the state party's backing. Much of his campaign this summer was spent positioning himself against Feingold, the Democrat looking for his fourth term. The pair already have traded a number of TV attack ads.
Ex-reality TV star Sean Duffy easily won the GOP primary for the open house seat in the 7th district, and now moves on to face Democrat Julie Lassa, who also won handily yesterday.
As AP reported:
Duffy starred in the MTV series "The Real World: Boston" in 1997 and served as the Ashland County district attorney. He beat farmer Dan Mielke. Lassa, a state senator from Stevens Point, defeated businessman Don Raihala. Both national parties are closely watching the race with control of Congress at stake.
