County Commissioner Jeff Johnson won in the Tuesday GOP primary, in spite of Pawlenty, a huge fundraising and awareness benefits. He also won in spite of his own history as to lose the party candidate for Governor four years ago.

In all, voters in four States went to the polls to choose on Tuesday, candidates for the critical Governor’s elections, house and Senate races in November, and some of the day, the competitions were grossly an early indication of voters ‘ views on trump and the Republican party seen.

Johnson had, as a conservative candidate than Pawlenty. He denounced the former two-term Governor, of the device as part of the “status quo” and kicked him for calling trump “out of joint, and unfit for the presidency” in the weeks leading up to the election in 2016 — rhetoric, tempered Pawlenty, during the campaign.

Pawlenty was to revive in the hope that his political career after flaming as a presidential candidate in 2011. He spent the following years as a Washington lobbyist.


Tim Pawlenty, who had called Trump ‘apart at the seams”, dened in its offer for a repetition of his old governorship on Tuesday.


Democratic Republic of the Tim Walz, meanwhile, won the party’s three-way primary for the governorship. Walz, left-to defeat the Congress after six terms, leveraged his Minnesota connections and a geographically balanced ticket, state Rep. Erin Murphy, and Attorney General Lori Swanson on Tuesday at the elementary school.

Elsewhere, Madison businessman and political newcomer Bob Stefanowski, the Republican won the primary for Connecticut Governor, defeating four fellow GOP contenders, and setting the stage for a decisive battle with businessman Ned Lamont in November.

Connecticut, ground zero for the Republican efforts to continue making your profits in the progressive New England. Although Connecticut voted for Hillary Clinton by double-digit growth rates in the year 2016, the state’s Governor, Dan Malloy, is deeply unpopular, with critics citing high taxes and an ongoing budget crisis. Malloy rejected a third term.

And in Wisconsin, Democrats make to overthrow yet another effort of the Republicans, Scott Walker, state schools chief Tony Evers nominated.

He was the only candidate, won the election in the country and now faces his biggest challenge against Walker, who has built up a large financial advantage.

The 66-year-old Evers was the state’s education chief since 2009 and has worked with Walker in the past, mostly from education.Walker’s campaign and the Republicans criticized Evers for the revocation of the license of a teacher who was caught viewing pornographic E-Mails on his school computer.

Meanwhile, Christine Hallquist history in Vermont Tuesday night, as the first openly transgender candidate for Governor beat the shaft from a large party in the history of the nation, the Democratic Challenger in the state primary school.

Christine Hallquist has been nominated to compete to be the first transgender-Governor elections in the nation’s history on Tuesday.


Hallquist defeated educator Brenda seal, formerly as the front-runner in the race, and environmentalist James Ehlers.

On the Republican side, first-term reg. Phil Scott overcame businessman Keith Stern to win the GOP gubernatorial primary, the survival of the great political consequences resulting from his decision to the state the first major gun control laws earlier this year.

Hallquist, a former CEO of the Vermont Electric Cooperative, has made no secret of the fact that they wanted a place in the history books in the campaign.

She appealed to the Vermonters with a progressive message, including a living wage, Medicare values for all, free public school education, and high-speed broadband access — even to those who live on remote country roads.

“This is how I want to be known, in Vermont,” Hallquist, 62, told The Associated Press in an interview in their Burlington offices. “National I want to be known as the first trans candidate.”

Gov. Phil Scott, in April, the signing of gun ownership legislation drew fierce protests.


Hallquist also defeated a candidate who tried to make history: a 14-year-old boy, Ethan, Sonneborn, has the advantage of the state in the Constitution of an age limit lack of to seek out the lieutenancy.

But faces Hallquist long odds in November. No sitting Governor to be defeated, has been in Vermont since 1962, and Scott’s win would continue. the Republicans’ surprisingly strong grip on General government in a highly progressive New England The GOP currently holds the General government of four of the six States in the region, including Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

But Scott may have a unique vulnerability. In April, he was so into the word fallen through a crowd of protesters called him a “liar” and “traitor,” as he signed gun legislation return to the law, citing the dangers, the shooting of mass.

The package of the exchange raised the minimum age to purchase firearms from 18 to 21, a ban on high-capacity magazines, and made it easier to take guns from people considered a risk to themselves or others, and of people arrested or cited for domestic assault.

Scott’s approval rating in the state, tank, after he under the measure, falling from 65 percent at the beginning of the year to 47 per cent shortly after the statement concluded. His disapproval rating almost doubled to 42 per cent in this period.
