As Wisconsin And Minnesota, So Goes The Nation?

Wisconsin and Minnesota held primary elections Tuesday, and the results have people wondering if a blue wave is building ahead of the midterms, which are now less than three months away.

Democrats in those states had big wins, including a number of glass ceiling candidates, like Somali-American Ilhan Omar from Minnesota. If Omar wins in November, she could be one of the first two Muslim women to serve in Congress.

Morning Shift talks to two political reporters from the Badger state and the North Star state to break down the primaries.

GUESTS: Shawn Johnson, political reporter for Wisconsin Public Radio
