  • Dems fear shutout in bid to take down GOP's Rohrabacher

Montana polls close at 10 p.m. EDT.

Sherrill will face the victor of a crowded Republican primary.

There also were contested Democratic primaries for three of Iowa's four U.S. House seats. Alabama and South Dakota will see fights play out on the right, with anti-Washington sentiments at the forefront. Still, Montana voted for President Trump by 20 points, which makes Tester one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country. Before then, Democrats must avoid self-inflicted wounds in Tuesday's so-called jungle primaries that feature a swarm of candidates who could cannibalize their own party's chances.

Democrats are hoping to target seven congressional seats now held by California Republicans in November.

Democrats also want Montana's House seat, held by Greg Gianforte, a Republican known for assaulting a reporter previous year.

It was a different story in MS, where 66-year-old Gladys Cruz wasn't sure which Republican she would support in the state's Senate primary, but she wants whoever wins to firmly support Trump.

While 31 challengers have submitted their names as candidates against Feinstein, only former state Senate leader Kevin de León, a Los Angeles Democrat, has run a serious campaign. He also promised to oppose Trump's immigration policies, and has called for universal preschool, two years of free community college, an end to the cash bail system and gun control. In the race for governor, former San Francisco Mayor and current Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom narrowly leads a field whose other top contenders include Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa - a former Los Angeles mayor - and Republican businessman John Cox. Republicans hope to be able to crack into the top two of either race, and Cox has a strong shot at doing so in the gubernatorial contest. "Those ballots will be processed and counted in the election returns", said Brenda Duran of the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder's Office. If no candidate achieves that, 1,000 delegates will choose a the party's nominee at the state convention on June 16th.

Trump lawyer Giuliani says president can probably pardon himself
And on Wednesday, Trump tweeted that he wished that he had chosen someone else to run the Justice Department. He continued: "So bad for our Country".

The Republican Senate primary here is a rare race that was expected to be brutally competitive but ended up not being competitive at all.

In Alabama, GOP Rep. Martha Roby is facing four fellow Republicans challenging her for her seat in the state's 2nd District.

"I look forward (to) watching the Democrats continue to nominate far-left progressives who are running to go to Congress to impeach the president and raise middle-class taxes", said Corry Bliss, whose Congressional Leadership Fund will spend tens of millions of dollars to defend the House Republican majority this fall. If no candidate clears 50% of the vote tonight, the top two will advance to a runoff on July 17.

Andrea McGuire - raised in Waterloo, Iowa, McGuire is the former chair of Iowa's Democratic Party from 2014-2016. "They've ruined California", the retired plumber said.

The retirements of longtime Republican congressmen Rodney Frelinghuysen and Frank LoBiondo have put two reliably Republican districts in the Democrats' crosshairs.

That's money the Democrats would have preferred to spend promoting their candidates this fall.
