Voters in two states—Minnesota, Wisconsin—went to the polls Tuesday where they made history and proved President Donald Trump's political power in the Midwest.
In Minnesota, former Republican governor and longtime Trump critic Tim Pawlenty lost his bid for another shot at the governor's mansion, defeated by Trump supporter Jeff Johnson.
"I am honored to represent the Republican Party in the general election this November," Johnson told supporters in his victory speech Tuesday night.
"I want to thank Tim Pawlenty and his supporters for running a tough race, and I very much look forward to uniting as one starting tonight—together we cannot be defeated in November," he said.
And in Wisconsin, state Sen. Leah Vukmir, also a Trump supporter, was nominated to face off against first-term Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
She vowed to give her opponent a run for her money in this fall's midterm elections.
"Tammy Baldwin has forgotten about the people of this great state and come November this nurse, this mom with a cause is going to send Tammy Baldwin back to the private sector she doesn't even know exists," Vukmir declared.
