Polls closed in Wisconsin primary

By  | 

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Polls are closed across Wisconsin in the primary election with hundreds of races on the line.

The biggest statewide contest is on the Democratic side for attorney general where three candidates are trying to win the nomination.

Turnout was only predicted to be 15 percent statewide, but sheriff's races are proving to be the big draws in some Wisconsin counties.

Voters in Milwaukee County tell The Associated Press that they are interested in the Democratic primary between Sheriff David Clarke and challenger Chris Moews. Clarke defeated Moews, 53 percent to 47 percent, in 2010.

Another locally hot race is in the 6th Congressional District in east-central Wisconsin where four Republicans are vying for the nomination in an open seat.
