In Minnesota’s special general election on Tuesday, Republican Brad Finstad gained just 4 percentage points in the 1st Congressional District, where then-President Donald Trump won by double digits in 2020, adding evidence to the idea that the GOP is facing a backlash after the Supreme Court ruling on abortion.
In this episode of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the team breaks down this election as well as notable primary races in Minnesota, Vermont and Wisconsin. They also examine how the incumbents are faring overall in the midterm primaries and discuss the FBI’s search for Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s Florida home, and what it may mean for the broader Department of Justice investigation.
