Primary fields bevy of races, including 3 locally


The fall election season swings into high gear in Minnesota with the state primary Tuesday.

The primary will narrow the field of candidates in many races across the state. Candidates chosen in the primary will be on the ballot for the Nov. 4 general election.

On the ballot are races for U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives and the Minnesota House of Representatives. Many areas also have county board and city council elections.
