What to Watch on Election Night in Wisconsin | Elections

Wisconsin, one of the closest states in the past two presidential elections, will play host to several pivotal races during its Aug. 9 primary.Republican voters will choose their nominees to take on Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul, whose offices will be pivotal for determining the future of abortion policy in the state.If a state law passed in 1849 were to be reimposed, abortion would be banned in Wisconsin without exceptions for rape and incest. Evers and Kaul have gone to court to prevent this from happening, while the leading Republican candidates have touted their anti-abortion credentials in the wake of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade earlier this summer.After a series of candidates dropped out late in the primary season, Wisconsin Democrats...

She's not. She's a candidate for state treasurer.Bhargava,...
