Republican U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy has defeated primary challenger Donald Raihala to advance to the general election.
Duffy is running for a fourth term representing the 7th District, the state's largest, covering more than 18,000 square miles in the central and northwest parts of the state.
Duffy easily won Tuesday's primary over Raihala, a real estate agent from Superior who ran for the seat twice before. Raihala lost in the Democratic primary in 2010, then ran as a Republican in 2014 and lost to Duffy.
Duffy is a former reality TV star and Ashland County district attorney.
