State Senator Mark Pocan of Wisconsin cruised to a huge victory in his primary in hopes of taking the US Congressional seat currently held by Rep. Tammy Baldwin.
Pocan got 72% of the vote in a four way primary. His strongest challenge came from Rep. Kelda Helen Roys, who only garnered about 22% of the vote.
Being a heavily Democratic district, this makes Pocan, who is openly gay, on track to replace Tammy Baldwin, who is stepping down as she runs for US Senate. If she wins her race, Baldwin will become the first out senator in the
nation and the first woman to represent Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate.
