Minnesota’s primaries will take place on Super Tuesday. In the 2016 general election, Hillary Clinton won the state with 46.44% of the vote, compared with Donald Trump’s 44.92%. The last Republican to carry Minnesota in a presidential general election was Richard Nixon in 1972. This is the longest Democratic streak of any state in the nation. Democratic Sen. Tina Smith was appointed after Al Franken resigned under sexual misconduct allegations in January 2018.
