Virginia Primary Voters to Pick Nominees in Local, Federal Races

Virginia Primary Voters to Pick Nominees in Local, Federal Races

U.S. Senate: Three Republicans will battle it out to be the GOP contender to take on Democratic-Incumbent Sen. "VOTE Katie!" Trump tweeted. He will be a great Governor.

Two other congressional races in Virginia will also be closely watched.

That proliferation of Democratic candidates reflects the fact that the 10th district is seen as one of the likeliest "blue wave" pickup opportunities.

The Democrats each say that they can beat Comstock.

Paul Pelletier, another Democratic candidate in the race who spent 27 years as a prosecutor, has taken a similar position, telling his hometown paper in MA that "there's enough evidence for the House to investigate".

While none of South Carolina's House seats are expected to be competitive in November, incumbent Rep. Mark Sanford is facing a hard Republican primary on Tuesday against state Rep. Katie Arrington. The victor will face incumbent Rep. Dave Brat (R - 7th District).

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. Now Trump is returning the favor with a last-minute endorsement of his primary rival, which brings up Sanford's infamous affair.

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.

'Disappointing': Experts React To The United States-North Korea Summit
As North Korea was conducting multiple missile tests a year ago and threatening to attack the U.S., Mr. President Trump said Tuesday there was a method to his "fire and fury" madness with North Korea .

And in the 3rd District, philanthropist Susie Lee is favored in the Democratic primary, while Republicans could choose Danny Tarkanian, the son of the legendary UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, who dropped his Senate bid at the urging of Trump. No Republican challenger filed to face him. Three have primary elections Tuesday night.

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.

On the Democratic side, voters also face a choice between political experience and newcomer perspective.

With both party primaries set for Tuesday, strong Democratic candidates are expected to emerge to challenge almost every major statewide office now held by Nevada Republicans, offering Democrats their best shot in years to seize political control over the state.

In Nevada, the race to replace outgoing Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval features primaries in both parties. The front-runner is Elaine Luria, a Navy veteran and businesswoman who's been endorsed by the party.

Helmer said he would support impeaching Trump without hesitation, accusing him of violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution and obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey. Pete Domenici and Michelle Laxalt, the daughter of former Nevada governor and senator Paul Laxalt.

Heitkamp, a former state attorney general, is popular in North Dakota. He faces a field of candidates that also includes state treasurer Dan Schwartz.
