There’s only one-third of the vote in, but WisconsinVote.org — a project of NPR and PBS — is projecting that Mark Pocan will be the winner of the Democratic primary in the state’s second congressional district. The Democratic-leaning district has an open seat because Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin is running for Senate.
Pocan, who is gay, would be Wisconsin’s third out gay member of Congress, following Baldwin and former Republican Rep. Steve Gunderson.
UPDATE: Pocan held his lead:
- At least 9 are dead and 25 missing after a warehouse party fire in Oakland, CA. Dozens of fatalities are feared.
- Donald Trump broke with decades of US policy by speaking with the president of Taiwan Friday, a move that could anger China.
- BuzzFeed News analyzed all the links in Donald Trump's tweets to determine where the president-elect gets his news 📰❗️
