While Tuesday was the fall primary, the election effectively decided the winner in several races. Melissa Sargent and Kelda Helen Roys both won primaries for State Senate. In Madison, an African immigrant - Samba Baldeh - and an Asian-American woman - Francesca Hong - won seats in the Assembly and in the Milwaukee suburbs, Julian Bradley, a Black man, won the primary in the 28th Senate district.
