Unusual First District race among primary battlesFarmington has no local primary races, but there is still reason for voters to cast their ballots Aug. 10. Voting is from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. There is a race for one of the 1st District judges’ position, currently held by Timothy Blakely. Stephen Baker and Larry Clark are challenging him. And, of course, there is the Minnesota governor’s race. While each of the major political party has endorsed candidates, they are being challenged.
