A dual election Tuesday in Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District, that includes Houston and Winona counties.
With both a special election for the US House seat and a primary on the same ballot, the incumbent heading into November will be Republican Brad Finstad.
With 51.1% of the vote, Finstad edged Democrat and former Hormel CEO, Jeff Ettinger, 60,261 votes to 55,341.
The two will square off again in November, as both won primary elections in their respective parties, as well.
Finstad, though, will finish the term vacated by Republican Jim Hagedorn, who passed away last February due to cancer. The US House seat had been open the past six months.
