Stearns Co. Voters Buck Statewide Election Trends
ST. CLOUD – No doubt a majority of Stearns County residents are waking-up not happy with the results of yesterday’s (Tuesday) elections.
On all of the key races, Stearns County voted exactly opposite of the rest of the state. While President Barack Obama won Minnesota, he lost to Romney here in the county 43-55 percent.
While Congresswoman Michele Bachmann retains her seat in the U.S. House, the county went to her Challenger Jim Graves 55-44 percent.
And, while both of the constitutional amendment questions failed statewide, they both passed comfortably here in Stearns County.
The Minnesota Secretary of State’s office says about 75% of Minnesotans turned out to cast their ballot on Election Day.
