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:
- The chairman of the National Governors Association said Trump has promised only criminals will deported and random spot checks won't be conducted.
- The trans sister of a Trump inauguration singer must be allowed to use the restroom that fits her gender ID, a judge ruled.
- The suspect in a Kansas shooting that left an Indian man dead thought he was shooting Iranians, and the FBI is investigating as a possible hate crime.
- Elon Musk announced that his SpaceX company will send two tourists around the moon by 2018 🚀🌝
