The race was competitive throughout, polls and analyst forecasts show. Data news site FiveThirtyEight gave Axne a three-in-five chance of victory in the days leading up to the election, while RealClearPolitics called the race a toss up.
Axne, a 53-year-old first-time congressional candidate, runs a digital design firm alongside her husband, her website says. Young has held the seat since 2014.
