Steve Simon wins another term as Minnesota Secretary of State

Democratic incumbent Secretary of State Steve Simon defended the post he’s held since 2015 in a successful attempt at combating voter fraud claims wielded by right-leaning voices around the nation.

The Associated Press called the race at about 12:38 a.m. after Simon earned 55% of votes.

Simon ran on a platform of “protecting the freedom to vote,” citing Minnesota’s national-best voter turnout the past three years and telling constituents to stand against disinformation claiming that their elections are not free and fair.
