Here is your live blog for the day.

T-Paw takes a hit.

Tim Pawlenty, former governor of Minnesota (2003-2011), lost the Republican primary to his rival, Jeff Johnson.

In Wisconsin, Leah Vukmir has won the Republican primary to defeat Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.).

Vukmir worked with Scott Walker and is the daughter of Greek immigrants.

L-G-B-T is the Democratic Party...

Sexual revolution dominates the Left.

Don't be so quick to celebrate.

More info on Ilhan Omar.

She's Somali...

From The Huffington Post's Sarah Ruiz-Grossman:

For Omar ― who was born in Somalia and spent four years in a refugee camp in Kenya before coming to the U.S. at age 12 ― breaking barriers will be nothing new. When she was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2016, she became the nation’s first Somali-American legislator.

“I hope my candidacy would allow people to have the boldness to encourage people who don’t fit into [a] particular demographic to seek office,” she told HuffPost that year. “To believe in the good will of the people to select someone they believe shares their vision and not necessarily their identity.”

Oh, and she's a radical regressive big government activist.

She’s also part of a movement of progressive candidates seeking to push the Democratic Party establishment further left. Omar is running on a progressive platform, including a $15 per hour minimum wage, Medicare for All and abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She was endorsed by the Justice Democrats ― the progressive political group that backed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York in her now-famous upset win.

It's so odd to see liberal Muslim women running for office. I'm glad to see that not all Muslims push for women to stay silent, but I can't help but be suspicious...

Keith Ellison wins.

Despite the new sexual abuse allegations, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) won the Democratic primary for Minnesota's attorney general.

Oh, and Ilhan Omar, a leftist Muslim woman, won the primary to replace Ellison in Congress next year.

Paul Ryan weighs in on GOP primary for his seat.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) is retiring from representing Wisconsin's First Congressional District next year, and he praised Bryan Steil, the winner of the Republican primary for his seat.

Bryan Steil is the right person to represent this district in Congress and I congratulate him on his win tonight. I know Bryan will take his private sector skills and problem-solving abilities to Washington and fight every day to improve the lives of Southern Wisconsinites, who I have been so privileged to serve for the last two decades. I will do everything I can to help his fall campaign, and look forward to his victory in November.
