Wisconsin House Results: Pocan Defeats Roys

August 14, 2012

Democratic state Rep. Mark Pocan defeated fellow state Rep. Kelda Roys in the Democratic primary in Wisconsin's 2nd District Tuesday night, setting himself up to replace Senate candidate and Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin as the representative from Madison in the next Congress.
