Primary voters pick nominees in local, federal races

Poll Democrats lead GOP by 6 on generic House ballot

U.S. Representative Mark Sanford, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, lost a Republican congressional primary in SC on Tuesday, after Trump urged voters to punish Sanford's disloyalty by tossing him from office. Numerous states also are pivotal in determining the outcome of presidential elections.

Polling places will be open in Virginia on Tuesday from 6:00 a.m.to 7:00 p.m. Make sure to bring a photo ID.

So far, the party has staved off a Democratic version of the 2010 tea party rise, when GOP leaders, even as they marched in lockstep opposition to then-President Barack Obama, watched more conservative outsiders defeat incumbent Republicans and fundamentally reshape the party's identity on Capitol Hill. Tim Kaine, a former governor and vice presidential candidate who is seeking a second term. The state will be the first in the nation to use ranked choice in statewide elections on Tuesday.

Voters in Glen Allen also were casting ballots in the Democratic primary for the 7th Congressional District, where former Central Intelligence Agency officer Abigail Spanberger was vying against Dan Ward, a farmer and former Marine. Luria will face incumbent Republican Rep. Scott Taylor, who is also a veteran, in the general election.

The year of women continues.

Wisconsin Democrats won a special election on Tuesday in a state senate district that Donald Trump carried by 18 points. There is no Republican on the November general election ballot.

In South Carolina, Gov. Henry McMaster was forced into a runoff against business executive John Warren.

She beat Sergio Coppola, a James Madison University graduate; Charlotte Moore, a former Roanoke County supervisor; and urban planner Peter Volosin, who had the backing of several Democratic state lawmakers. "The leading Republicans.are pitching themselves as Tea Party allies of President Trump". Sanford only won re-nomination by 4,000 votes in 2016, but he has also demonstrated a remarkable ability to weather political storms and controversies over the years.

Sixteen percent of voters, no doubt including many annoyed Republicans, left their senate ballots blank, the highest rate in seven decades.


MCMASTER OF HIS OWN FATE: The Palmetto State is home to one of the most compelling gubernatorial contests of the year. Blended primaries disenfranchise voters while placing a disproportionate amount of power in the hands of the few who turn out for primaries.

Tuesday's primaries provide one of the clearest tests yet of how much GOP primary voters are willing to tolerate a candidate who has criticized President Trump - and the president was making his choices clear in the final hours of voting.

The AP actually called the Democratic primary before the Republican contest. Democrats need to win three more seats to retake the senate chamber in November.

A key measure of Democrats' leanings will come in suburban northern Virginia, where vulnerable Republican Barbara Comstock has a half-dozen Democrats vying to knock her out of Congress in November. CNN rates both as Lean Republican. CNN rates it Likely Republican.

Dean Heller in what promises to be one of the most important races for the U.S. Senate. But the race is close on the Democratic side - either Steve Sisolak or Christina Giunchigliani, both Clark County Commissioners, is expected to take the nomination.

Republican Congressman Tom Garrett has announced he will not seek re-election in District Five, which includes Charlottesville, as he battles alcoholism. His central Nevada district, including the Las Vegas suburbs, gives Democrats a slight advantage, as CNN rates this race lean Democrat.

Through Tuesday, unaffiliated voters who only want to receive one party's ballot may update their registration and declare a "party preference".

Silverii said the candidate who can attract the most unaffiliated voters becomes governor.

One week after ballots started going out in the mail to Colorado's 3.28 million active registered voters, almost 38,000 have been returned to election officials, Secretary of State Wayne Williams announced Monday.

Julia Biggins, an infectious disease scientist running in the primary, also said she would wait to review the results of the Mueller investigation before deciding how to vote on potentially impeaching the president.
