Democrats outdraw Republicans in Wisconsin as Tuesday’s primary turnout approaches 1 million

Journal Sentinel —  August 15, 2018

More people voted than ever in Wisconsin’s partisan primary Tuesday.

And in what may be another sign of energy on the left, a contested Democratic primary for governor drew about 20 percent more voters than a contested Republican primary for U.S. Senate, even though the GOP race was more competitive and generated far more television advertising.

The most striking example of Democratic turnout came in the ultramobilized “blue” bastion of Dane County, which produced 40 percent more votes than ever before in a Democratic primary for governor or Senate.
