Colorado primary races are two weeks away

Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Primaries on tap for Tuesday

This is especially significant for Democrats heading into November, as the presence of strong, moderate female candidates - all positioned differently than the insurgent resistance movement - may serve to revitalize the blue wave that Democrats hope comes to fruition. (Friedman had loaned her campaign $1 million as of the pre-primary reporting period.) Coming in fourth was Army veteran Dan Helmer, who attracted media attention for his offbeat ads, including one that compared President Donald Trump to Osama bin Laden.

In the 6th District, Democratic incumbent James Clyburn, Republican candidate Gerhard Gressmann of Estill, and the Green Party's Bryan Pugh of Orangeburg ran unopposed for their party's nomination and will face each other in November in the state's only majority-minority district.

U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer defeated a little-known opponent to win North Dakota's Republican primary for U.S. Senate.

Voters in ME will be using a new system to elect their general election candidates Tuesday and they'll be the first state in the nation to do so.

Early returns suggest voter turnout in the 2018 Republican and Democratic primary is higher than the 2014 and 2016 primaries.

Republican state Attorney General Adam Laxalt won the GOP primary for Nevada governor. All polls are closed at 9 p.m. EDT in North Dakota. And Democratic voters typically aren't tapping the most liberal choices in targeted districts.

In North Dakota, a state that Donald Trump carried by almost 36 points in 2016, Rep. Kevin Cramer won the Republican nomination for Senate to challenge Heitkamp. There is no Republican candidate on the November general election ballot. Sanford was a vocal Trump critic in 2016, when the NY businessman scored a critical victory in the South Carolina Republican presidential primary.

A state that avoided a bitter intraparty fight is Nevada, where Danny Tarkanian had been angling to challenge onetime Trump foe, GOP Sen. 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. A voter who forgets ID can cast a provisional ballot but will have to complete follow-up steps to ensure that it's counted.

MCMASTER OF HIS OWN FATE: The Palmetto State is home to one of the most compelling gubernatorial contests of the year. The race is a top pickup opportunity for Republicans, who are trying to hold onto a narrow 51-to-49 Senate advantage.

Longtime Register of Deeds John O'Brien of Lynn also will be facing a Democratic primary challenge in September.

Corey Stewart, a combative conservative Republican and immigration hardliner who almost upset Ed Gillespie for the party's gubernatorial nomination a year ago, won the right to face Democratic Senator Tim Kaine, the 2016 vice presidential candidate, in November's U.S. Senate election in November.

Stapleton should be cruising to a primary win and positioning himself for the general election, instead of struggling to establish his identity in June, pundits agreed. Both seats are now held by Democrats, but are considered competitive come November. Six Democrats are running, and whoever emerges will be in a toss-up against Comstock.

The two seats had been vacant since December, when Gov. Scott Walker appointed Republicans incumbents Frank Lasee and Keith Ripp to his administration. CNN rates both as Lean Republican.

She'll challenge Republican Congresswoman Barbara Comstock in the 10 Congressional District. CNN rates it Likely Republican.

In Nevada, the Senate race has emerged as a marquee midterm showdown.

"As I've said before, no elected official is entitled to his job", O'Brien said, adding that he welcomes other candidates and has met Merkl. CNN rates this race as Lean Democrat.

Republican Congressman Tom Garrett has announced he will not seek re-election in District Five, which includes Charlottesville, as he battles alcoholism.

MAINE VOTING ATTRACTION: Maine's contests for governor and Second House District are in Democrats' eyes to take in November, but most political watchers are looking to the Pine Tree state to see how the voting turns out.

Under the system, now used in a few local jurisdictions, the election is over if one candidate wins a majority. So how many voters will show up and vote? "It's alerting unaffiliated voters they'll receive two ballots and instructing them they can only vote one".

Anyone not already registered is not allowed to vote.
