Democratic Primary Election: Night ends with no surprises

With many races on your Democratic ballot featuring either zero or one candidate on the ballot, Tuesday's primary was more of a formality than anything. Governor Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul were unopposed for their statewide offices. First District Assembly candidate Roberta Thelen and First Senate District candidate Andrea Gage-Michaels also had no one to face other potential write-in candidates. Speaking of write-in candidates, Julie Hancock was hoping to get at least 7,000 votes so she can appear on the ballot opposite likely Republican primary winner Rep. Mike Gallagher. Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes won his U.S. Senate primary easily, but many of his prospective opponents bowed out of the race weeks ago.  Doug La Follette easily won his Democratic primary over Alexia Sabor for his re-election bid for Secretary of State. The only competitive primary was for state treasurer where Aaron Richardson is leading but has not been declared the winner over Gillian Battino.
