2018 Virginia Primary Voter Guide
Finally, there's the Republican primary for a candidate who can compete against Democratic Sen.
Another key draw, said Belangia: "Both political parties have candidates in the Congressional Districts and one here in Greenville has received a tremendous amount of attention". Heidi Heitkamp, at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, North Dakota, U.S. April 7, 2018.
"In 2014, we got demolished, and it was a nightmare of a year", said Michelle White, Nevada state director of For Our Future, a mobilization nonprofit for Democratic progressive candidates.
Northern Virginians go to the polls Tuesday in a race that could help decide who takes control of Congress next year. Republicans say she's trying to hide her extreme views. Tim Kaine. As a moderate who gained national prominence as Hillary Clinton's 2016 running mate, Kaine is widely expected to win - not even counting the possibility that Republicans could make another Roy Moore-style blunder.
SC and ME have contests for governor, but the outcome in the ME races to pick candidates to replace outgoing Republican Governor Paul LePage could be delayed as officials sort out the results in the new ranked-choice voting system.
This week's principal focus is on Virginia, a state trending increasingly blue where Republicans hold a number of vulnerable House seats.
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. Comstock has represented the district since 2015 after she served in the Virginia House of Delegates for four years.
In the 6th District, voters are deciding the Democratic nominee to face off with GOP nominee Ben Cline.
On the GOP side, freshman Republican Congressman Scott Taylor, a former Navy SEAL from Virginia Beach, faces off against Mary Jones, a former chair of the James City County Board of Supervisors. The Democratic nominees will be the overwhelming favorites in November.
"This is about a president who presents a grave danger to our democracy", he told ABC News. Comstock faces a conservative GOP challenger, retired Air Force pilot Shak Hill, in her primary.
Virginians and the country will be keeping a close eye on two primary races that could have a major impact on the U.S. House and Senate.
Another House race to watch is in South Carolina's first district, where Republican incumbent Mark Sanford, the Palmetto State's former governor, faces a tough challenge from state Representative Katie Arrington.
"Bless his heart, but it is time for Mark Sanford to take a hike - for real this time", Arrington says in ad.
Just six of the nation's governors are women, and candidates in three states voting on Tuesday are hoping to position themselves to join their ranks.
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.
Most of these states have interesting and competitive races, but not North Dakota.
