Parties prepare for primary day


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- It's primary election day across Minnesota on Tuesday, and members of the DFL, the Republican and Independence parties are casting their ballots and lining up their candidates for the battle in November.

Polls open Tuesday at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

We have profiled the two Republicans facing off in the First Congressional District primary contest -- State Senator Mike Parry of Waseca and Allen Quist of St. Peter.

But that's not the only interesting race.

Voters in one part of Wabasha County have the chance to weigh in on a four-way battle for County Commissioner District 3.

Three candidates are taking on incumbent Merl Norman. If a challenger is elected, it could move power away from commissioners Deb Roschen and David Harms.

Harms and Roschen have voted with Norman on issues, such as cutting the county's administrator position.

Kevin Kautz, Eugene McNallan and Donald Springer are running against Norman.

The two candidates who get the most votes Tuesday move on to the November general election.
