Primaries on tap for Tuesday

A statewide primary will decide the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate.

"Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA", Trump wrote.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump said. "He is better off in Argentina", the president wrote, referring to Sanford's 2009 trip to South America to have an affair when his staff said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love.

President Donald Trump also endorsed Laxalt, calling him "smart" and predicting he would "be a great Governor. fight hard to lower your taxes [and be] tough on crime!"

"I think it's in some ways a bit of a thermometer about how Republicans in the state of Virginia are going to either embrace or move away from the President, because Corey Stewart has embedded himself and wrapped his arms around the administration", said NBC12 Political Analyst and VCU professor Dr. Deirdre Condit. Hill's campaign for the Republican nomination then was cut short by a vote by acclamation for consultant and lobbyist Ed Gillespie, who narrowly lost to Warner in that election. Tim Kaine and choosing nominees in several competitive House races, Nevada and North Dakota choosing their Senate candidates and ME for the first time trying - and voting on whether to keep - a new voting system in which voters rank their preferences, rather than only selecting one. Arrington has sought to use Sanford's frequent criticism of Trump as a wedge with GOP primary voters. "Adam is smart, works hard, and knows how to win".

Rosen is vacating her seat in the Third Congressional District, and it's widely expected that philanthropist Susie Lee will easily land the Democratic nomination for that district.

Republican strategists acknowledge voter enthusiasm appears high among Democrats, but they attribute that more to there being a stronger field of blue candidates than in past years. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), and state Sen.

In the Seventh Congressional District, incumbent Republican Rep. Dave Brat will face off against the victor of a Democratic primary between former Central Intelligence Agency operative Abigail Spanberger and retired Col. Dan Ward. The Democratic primary is a competitive race now between Abigail Spanberger and Dan Ward.

But the race's two other candidates have both positioned themselves as outsiders, banking on voters' desire to elect political newcomers.

In Nevada, the parties will choose their nominees in two competitive open seats.

Heller was being challenged from the right by Danny Tarkanian, but Trump persuaded him to drop out of the race. There are primaries Tuesday night in three of those seats. Corey Stewart, a combative conservative who almost upset Ed Gillespie for the party's gubernatorial nomination previous year, will square off against state House of Delegates member Nick Freitas and pastor E.W. Jackson.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., is not facing a primary challenge Tuesday, a sign of his longtime dominance among Democrats in Virginia, where he served as governor from 2006 to 2010.

That's in part due to Virginia's changing demographics, particularly the northern part of the state becoming more dense, more diverse and more progressive.

"Just be aware that it is two elections", Cochran told WDBJ7, "Democratic primary, Republican primary". U.S. Rep. Tom Rice faces a Republican challenger along with Sanford. If he fails to top 50%, it would catapult him into a one-on-one runoff.

The District Four congressional seat, including Chesterfield and Powhatan, is now held by Democrat Don McEachin. She's a former chairwoman of James City County Council.

Maine Attorney General Janet Mills leads the Democratic primary, but former Maine House Speaker Mark Eves, state Sen. Scott Hammond and former reporter Michelle Mortensen.
