More vote in DFL gov, Senate primaries than Republican ones

Posted by: Rachel E. Stassen-Berger Updated: August 13, 2014 - 12:10 AM

Despite a four-way Republican governor primary, more DFLers voted in the near certain DFL primary for governor.

Democratic Sen. Al Franken got more votes than the entire GOP Senate field combined.

While primary voting strength does not have decisive implications for November votes, the results may hold some interest for partisans working on 'get out the vote' campaigns.

The numbers reflect the turnout with about 95 percent of the vote tallied.
