(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the Minnesota gubernatorial race for incumbent Democrat Tim Walz.
Walz faced a close race against Republican challenger Scott Jensen.
The decision Minnesotans make this election has the potential to go beyond local and state governments — it could flip the U.S. House of Representatives from red to blue.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the state’s 2nd District where incumbent Democrat Angie Craig faced Republican challenger Tyler Kistner.
NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the district for Craig.
Craig defeated Kistner on Tuesday, winning a high-stakes rematch and frustrating the GOP’s best hope of flipping a Minnesota congressional seat with House control at stake.
Minnesota is one of 27 states having elections for Secretary of State this year.
NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the state’s Secretary of State race for incumbent Democrat Steve Simon.
Simon defeated Republican Kim Crockett who falsely called the 2020 election “rigged” and more recently said mail-in ballots leave voters open to fraud. The United States Postal Service has denied such claims, and they have no factual evidence attached to them.
On Tuesday, there will be 470 U.S. congressional seats — 35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats — up for election. These elections will determine who has control over the two branches of Congress, and ultimately, who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden’s remaining years in office.
