Minnesota Primary Election results: Congressional District 1

Minnesotans living in the First Congressional District had a bit of a confusing ballot this year.

That's because voters in southern Minnesota are voting in a primary to determine the November matchup for the First Congressional District's next two-year term, and also a Special Election to choose who will finish out late U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn's term, which ends in January. 

The special election, which features former Republican state Rep. Brad Finstad and Democrat Jeff Ettinger, a former Hormel CEO, is taking place within the "old" Congressional District 1 boundaries (they were redrawn earlier this year). You can find those results here.

Finstad and Ettinger also competed in the primary. 

Ettinger won the Democratic primary, with 91% of the vote, beating out two others. In the GOP primary, Finstad won with 77% of the vote, beating state Rep. Jeremy Munson, who secured 23% of the vote (with 54% of votes counted). 

Here are the results of the primaries in the First Congressional District:
