St. Cloud, Minn.

State representative Kurt Bills earned 53 percent of the vote of the delegates at the Minnesota Republican party convention on the first ballot. Bills is just 7 percentage points shy of winning the nomination outright with 60 percent support. Dan Severson and Pete Hegseth garnered 23 percent and 21 percent, respectively.

Voting will continue with a second ballot, and neither Severson nor Hegseth appears to be dropping out of the race before then.
