Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Primaries on tap for Tuesday”

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. Taylor is running for reelection on the Republican ballot for this primary.

If Democrats have any shot of winning control of the Senate, they'll need to successfully defend Sen.

As you're voting, remember that it is OK to take a "ballot selfie" in Virginia. They say with more women candidates this year, issues important to women will be major factors.

While Democrats here helped Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton win the state in 2008, 2012 and 2016-and the party completed a takeover of both chambers of the statehouse in 2016-Nevada has kept most top constitutional statewide offices in Republican hands.

Voters in ME will be the first in the nation to use the system in a statewide election.

President Donald Trump publicly endorsed Katie Arrington, a South Carolina Republican running for Congress, on Tuesday afternoon. Heller, 58, who holds the most vulnerable of the nine GOP-held seats on the ballot in 2018, won a reprieve from a contested GOP primary when Trump successfully urged announced rival Republican Danny Tarkanian to drop out of the Senate race and run for a House seat instead. But this year, Democrats are poised to finally make that jump.

On Tuesday, June 12, voters in Virginia will head to the polls.

Only eight of those 51 seats are now held by Democrats, while 43 are held by Republicans.

We asked the Director of Elections and Voter Registration for Greenville County why voters should care about this year's primaries. Cramer, 57, is the GOP's top choice, after he changed his mind this spring and said he would run for Senate rather than stay in the House. Eastern in North Dakota, and at 10 p.m.in Nevada. He enjoys high name recognition and has a hefty campaign account.

Voters will be heading to the polls to select nominees for House of Representatives and other local races across the state.

In his ad, Helmer warned that the "greatest threat to our democracy" today "lives in the White House", a comment the White House called "reprehensible" and "abhorrent".

"We came to realize that people were rising up and realizing that we can't sit on the sidelines anymore, and I came to realize that I can't do that either", she said in an interview.

On Sunday, Giunchigliani's campaign released a 1-minute robocall featuring the former Democratic presidential nominee.

Another Tuesday, another wave of primaries.

"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.

In northern Virginia's District Ten, six candidates are vying for the Democratic nomination while Republican incumbent Barbara Comstock faces Shak Hill in the primary.

Nevada's Senate primary became much less interesting when businessman Danny Tarkanian was persuaded by Trump to end his challenge to Republican incumbent Sen. Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) is nearly certain to win the Republican primary to face Sen. But if Sanford loses - a real possibility - it'll be because of his criticisms of the president. It works like this: Rather than checking a box for just one candidate, voters rank all candidates in order of preference.

It is a different story in western counties, where voters must choose between a Republican and Democratic ballot.

Fifty-one of the 99 competitive races are in those eight states-California (10), Pennsylvania (9), Florida (7), OH (5), Minnesota (5), New Jersey (5), NY (5), and MI (5).
