Current House Scoreboard
Bottom Line

The retirement of 74-year-old Minnesota Representative Rick Nolan boosted GOP hopes for picking up the seat. The district narrowly voted for Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012, but preferred Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton by a 15-point margin.

Ballotpedia has identified this as a key Republican primary to watch. It identified 15 U.S. Senate primaries, 38 U.S. House primaries, and 9 primaries for state executive offices. See the full story here.
