Low primary turnout expected
Primary elections are notorious for low turnout, and Tuesday’s appears to be particularly uninteresting to a lot of Rock County residents, said Rock County Clerk Lisa Tollefson. Tollefson said she hears from municipal clerks around the county that absentee voting for this election is at a low ebb, one indicator of voter disinterest. Rock County has about 121,000 eligible voters. Tollefson expects 6 percent to 8 percent of them will vote.

Dillon wins Daytona 500
Austin Dillon won the Daytona 500 on Sunday night driving the iconic No. 3 Chevrolet that Dale Earnhardt piloted for most of his career. Dillon’s victory, in the 60th running of “The Great American Race,” came 17 years to the day of Earnhardt’s fatal crash. Dillon wasn’t a factor until the final lap in overtime when he got a push from Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. that helped him get to leader Aric Almirola. Dillon spun Almirola then whizzed on by for the win.

That was apparent in 15 Twitter posts over 19 hours late Saturday and early Sunday as Trump sought to battle against the latest charges by Mueller.
