Democratic women win big in key Virginia House primaries

Establishment Republicans are also hoping to avoid a Roy Moore situation in their quest to pick their nominee to face off against Democratic Sen.

Their bigger worry, though, is how Stewart's presence on the ballot could lead Republican voters to stay at home, hurting the party in several competitive House races.

Plus, we'll see the first state adopt a voting system where voters rank their choices.

Arrington's campaign was based on the premise that Sanford - who has criticized Trump's style and questioned his knowledge - is insufficiently supportive of the President.

Sanford made enemies as governor in 2009, when he disappeared to Argentina during an extramarital affair. Dean Heller will likely breeze through his primary. McMaster has gotten a boost from the president and appears to be leading the field, but if he doesn't get over 50% of the vote Tuesday the race will go into a runoff later this month. Trump repaid that loyalty over the weekend with a tweet lavishing praise on McMaster.

Tea party favorite Sharron Angle was trying Tuesday to unseat the incumbent Republican in the GOP's strongest congressional district in Nevada, where two other Democrat-held open seats will be up for grabs in November. Tim Kaine. Corey Stewart, who almost claimed the nomination for governor a year ago and has attracted controversy for his defense of Confederate statues, is probably the front-runner - much to the chagrin of national Republicans. Four lesser-known candidates are also running. Nick Freitas, who has the support of groups aligned with libertarian champions like the Koch brothers and Kentucky Sen.

Trump endorsed Laxalt, a former lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, who handily won the GOP primary. The commonwealth has gotten bluer, but the GOP has only moved farther to the right there. Voters there supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 by a 10-point margin over Trump.

The White House convinced Tarkanian, a frequent candidate and son of a famed basketball coach in the state, to run for an open House contest instead.

Republican state Attorney General Adam Laxalt is expected to win the GOP primary for the governor's race.

Will women rule Democratic House races again? .

Both seats are now held by Democrats, but are considered competitive come November.

While Democrats swept Rosen past five other candidates in her race, they faced a tougher choice settling on a candidate to try to deliver them the governor's mansion for the first time in two decades.

Another key Trump supporter, Tarkanian, won the Republican race for Nevada's 3rd Congressional District. Jennifer Wexton is seen as the front-runner and has lined up endorsements of numerous state's Democratic officials, including Gov. Ralph Northam. One competitor, Alison Friedman, committed $1 million of her money.

In the Hampton Roads-area 2nd Congressional District, another swing-district race with a Republican incumbent seen as vulnerable in the fall, GOP Rep. Scott Taylor fended off a primary challenger. "And gender is really the only reason why", Ward said, noting he has to be careful not to come off like a "raging misogynistic jerk" even though he often wants to fight back.

Democrats will choose between two Clark County commissioners - Steve Sisolak, a moderate backed by former Sen.

While it was not all good news for Democrats in Wisconsin on Tuesday - Ann Groves Lloyd, the Democrat running in the special election in Wisconsin State Assembly District 42, conceded to her Republican opponent - national Democratic operatives argue their showing in state legislative races shows voters are prepared to rebuke the President in November.

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.

ME voters will decide how they'd prefer to veer in their search for the successor to term-limited conservative Republican Gov. Paul LePage. The party needs to gain 23 seats to win the majority in the House. On the GOP side, former GOP Rep. Cresent Hardy is expected to win the Republican nomination, setting up a rematch with Horsford; Hardy beat Horsford in 2014, but lost two years later to Kihuen.
