Democratic primaries take spotlight in House races in Va.

Democratic primaries take spotlight in House races in Va.

President Trump urged South Carolina Republicans to vote U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford out of office Tuesday, tweeting that the three-term congressman was "better off in Argentina" - a reference to a sex scandal that forced Sanford to resign as governor.

Political analysts say the primaries and midterm election in November are expected to reflect how voters think President Trump is doing.

Andrew Cochran is the General Registrar in the City of Roanoke.

Democrats had hoped that the "jungle primary" held on Tuesday in California and its 53 Congressional districts might keep Republicans off the ballot in the 14 seats they now hold, but that hope did not pan out, as Republicans placed in the top two finishers who qualify for the November ballot in all of those districts. "Voters will be asked to tell us which one they wish to vote, so that we can assign them the correct ballot".

Turnout was generally light, a state election commission spokesman said early Tuesday afternoon. But this year, Democrats are poised to finally make that jump.

Nevada also has an interesting governor's race, with six Democrats and seven Republicans vying to run for a position that's been controlled by the GOP for almost 20 years.

Republicans in VA-10: Candidates are Rep. Barbara Comstock and Shak Hill.

This week's principal focus is on Virginia, a state trending increasingly blue where Republicans hold a number of vulnerable House seats. He ultimately voted for a GOP replacement measure, a decision that Rosen will try to exploit in a year when health care is one of the top issues with voters.

Love Island's Kendall 'gutted' to be first contestant dumped
Speaking after being booted off, she revealed she's "gutted" to be the first out, and explained who she had her eye on... The results left viewers rather annoyed and now Kendall herself has spoken out.

If Fenty were to win the primary, reflected Condit, "I think she brings something very different to the Republican Party than the state of Virginia Republicans are accustomed to". Comstock has represented the district since 2015 after she served in the Virginia House of Delegates for four years.

In Nevada, Democrats face a contentious primary that could cost them the victory in November.

In the second district, which includes the Hampton Roads area, both Democrats running to challenge incumbent Republican Representative Scott Taylor are women. The Peace Garden State has two key primaries: one for U.S. Senate and another for U.S. House.

In the 6th District, voters are deciding the Democratic nominee to face off with GOP nominee Ben Cline.

Friedman, who said she made a decision to run for office in part because Trump "scared my kids", said potential Democrat-led impeachment proceedings in the House would be "one of the most serious moments in our nation's history", but wouldn't commit to voting for impeachment without reviewing any impeachment articles. State Attorney General Janet Mills, who like Giunchigliani has the backing of Emily's List, started the race as the front-runner but has faced tough competition from the large field.

Republican Catherine Templeton and Democrat Marguerite Willis are vying to become South Carolina's governor, though both face long odds of emerging victorious in their primaries.

Some Democrats are upset that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has already backed Luria before the primary.
