Voters cull the herd in legislative primaries

  • Meet John Cox and Gavin Newsom the candidates for California governor

Attorney General Adam Laxalt defeated a fellow beneficiary of the 2014 Republican wave, state Treasurer Dan Schwartz, for their party's nomination. That leaves Coloradans with a primary more about personalities.

While Republicans held on to an open assembly near Madison that was also on Tuesday's ballot, the defeat was a major rebuke to Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Otherwise, Democrats are in a heated race to uphold liberal values, and Republicans are as conservative as they've ever been in a Colorado gubernatorial race. Another competitive November election will be take shape here on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Walker went back to court to ask for more time to postpone the elections, only to face two further rulings that he was constitutionally required to schedule them.

The race for Secretary of State also has a Swampscott connection, as town resident Anthony Amore, the security chief at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, is running unopposed in the Republican primary. But he looks vulnerable for November, given his campaign missteps - limited debates, interviews that lend themselves to attacks quoting his own words and a verifiably untrue campaign ad that's still on the air.

Media trends and vote counts are clear. In a separate special election, Democrat Ann Groves Lloyd conceded her race to Republican Jon Plumer in the 42nd Assembly District.

That might give former state Sen.

Even if Democrats can not flip key legislatures this year, Post said the party aims to make significant gains for a better shot at clinching majorities in 2020 before redistricting.

Stewart, chairman of the Prince William County board of supervisors, surprised many by almost winning last year's Republican nomination for governor.

It's voters like that, Wexton and others said, who will decide Tuesday's race.

That was not enough for Trump, who also mocked Sanford with a reference to a 2009 scandal when the then governor disappeared for days before surfacing to say he was "hiking the Appalachian Trail".

Horsford, an ex-state lawmaker from Las Vegas, became the first African-American to represent Nevada in Congress when he won the seat in 2012. She should face Republican Danny Tarkanian, who lost to Rosen by under 4,000 votes in 2016.

"This is about a president who presents a grave danger to our democracy", he told ABC News.

Dwane Casey coaches the Toronto Raptors against the Washington Wizards during the first round of the playoffs on April 17, 2018. The Pistons recently hired the former Nets general manager Ed Stefanski to lead their search for new front-office executives.

Teachers unions endorsed Kennedy, but Polis and Johnston have been reformers on charters schools, eying metrics that would measure how well schools and teachers do.

But Republicans, likewise, have surged hard right on immigration, promising action against "sanctuary cities" such as Denver, Boulder and Aurora over undocumented immigrants. Kaine will begin the general election as a favorite to win re-election against whichever Republican emerges.

"He not taking advantage of that luxury", Sondermann said.

The field includes top Republicans in the state legislature, Senate Majority Leader Garrett Mason and House Minority Leader Kenneth Fredette; LePage's former state health agency chief, Mary Mayhew; and businessman Shawn Moody, who's trying to claim the outsider mantle.

Democrats loved seeing Mitchell go on the offensive.

Maine Attorney General Janet Mills could make a breakthrough for women in her state's governor's race, but the outcome may not be clear immediately.

The group advocates a more ambitious strategy of targeting dozens of districts where Clinton was competitive in 2016 but fell short, or where Democrats previously did well.

Proponents argued in 2010 that jungle primaries would lead to the election of more moderates.

There were exceptions in Cherokee and Darlington counties, where sharply contested local races had somewhat heavier turnout, Chris Whitmire with the election commission said. "And I'm actually the only candidate that has extensive federal legislative experience, over 12 years", said Davis Stover.

Colorado is a purple state. Together, they raise to 21 the number of states having held their 2018 primary elections so far. "Dave Brat has been famously troubled when it comes to dealing with moderate women's issues and certainly women's issues overall".

This report, provided by Virginia Public Radio, was made possible with support from the Virginia Education Association. Now, six of them are fighting to take it back. So how many voters will show up and vote?

"The key to this is voter education", Candelarie said.
