States such as Wisconsin helped drive Donald Trump’s surprising presidential win two years ago, and Tuesday's primaries there and in neighboring Minnesota could serve as a barometer of opposition strength headed into the November midterm elections. Voters were going to the polls in those states for party primaries, and Democrats will have a chance to show they can mobilize voters for Nov. 6’s congressional elections and perhaps the 2020 presidential race as well. Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to win Wisconsin in 32 years, and he narrowly lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton in Minnesota.
