John Deeth Blog: Legislative result round up

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The incumbents with challengers all survived and the favored
candidates generally came through in last night's legislative
primaries. Your round up: Senate District 16: High school football has
a 50 point rule, but not so for politics. Republican Dave McLaughlin
gets the blowout of the night award, for an 88 percent to 12 percent
win over Gary Lee Culver, who campaigned little. McLaughlin is a top
tier GOP challenger against incumbent Tom Hancock. Senate District 18:
Republican Joe Childers won handily over Karla Sibert, 72 percent to
28 percent, in his bid to fill Mary Lundby's shoes. This is one of the
Democrat's top pickup chances with Rep. Swati Dandekar.
