Minnesota Primary Election results: Hennepin County Attorney

The field of candidates for Hennepin County Attorney is packed, with seven candidates vying to replace outgoing County Attorney Mike Freeman

This is the first time the seat has been open in 24 years, and it's been quite a competitive race — especially as violent crime is top of mind for many who live in the state's most populous county. 

With all precincts reporting., DFL-endorsed Mary Moriarty, a former Hennepin County public defender, received 36.65 of the vote. Martha Holton Dimick, a former judge, was second with 17.89%. 

Those two will face off for the seat in November.

Hennepin County Sheriff primary results

Another watched race in Hennepin County is for sheriff, to replace troubled Sheriff Dave Hutchinson, who isn't seeking a second term after a DWI crash last year. There are three candidates on the ballot: Dawanna Witt, a sheriff's office major; Jai Hanson, a Bloomington police officer, and Joseph Banks, a bail agent and former officer. 

With all of the precincts reporting the top two vote-getters were Witt with 57.05% of the vote and Banks with 22.46%. 

Those two will be on the ballot in November.
