Two Vulnerable Senate Incumbents at Center of Tuesday Primaries

Trump Drops in on Democrats Blue Wave

Trump Blue Wave

Those two contests will be among the most closely watched in Tuesday's round of primaries that also include contests in Virginia, South Carolina and Maine.

As South Carolina "Republican" and Democratic voters prepare to go to the polls in tomorrow's partisan primary elections, a big chunk of the electorate will stay home for a very simple reason: They already voted.

Candidates running in the Democratic primary for the Virginia 10th Congressional District seat participate in a candidates forum, February 17, 2018, at James Wood Middle School in Winchester, Va.

Primary elections do not generally draw a large pool of voters.

Andrew Cochran is the General Registrar in the City of Roanoke. In the state partisan primary elections five months later, 52,130 absentee ballots were cast - or 12.5 percent of the 417,935 total votes. "Voters will be asked to tell us which one they wish to vote, so that we can assign them the correct ballot".

Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C. - a former SC governor who has never lost a bid for political office - is sweating Tuesday's primary against a newcomer who has portrayed him as a disloyal Never-Trumper, Politico reported. But this year, Democrats are poised to finally make that jump.

It is a different story in western counties, where voters must choose between a Republican and Democratic ballot. On the Republican side, state Attorney General Adam Laxalt is expected to win. He ultimately voted for a GOP replacement measure, a decision that Rosen will try to exploit in a year when health care is one of the top issues with voters. Republicans say she's trying to hide her extreme views.


While Democrats here helped Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton win the state in 2008, 2012 and 2016-and the party completed a takeover of both chambers of the statehouse in 2016-Nevada has kept most top constitutional statewide offices in Republican hands. "We have had it with career politicians".

In that pursuit he's drawn four GOP challengers, including Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant and Yancey McGill, a former Democratic state senator who briefly served as lieutenant governor.

In northern Virginia's District Ten, six candidates are vying for the Democratic nomination while Republican incumbent Barbara Comstock faces Shak Hill in the primary. Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) is nearly certain to win the Republican primary to face Sen.

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 Democratic candidates have a challenge getting voters to remember their names.

Fifty-one of the 99 competitive races are in those eight states-California (10), Pennsylvania (9), Florida (7), OH (5), Minnesota (5), New Jersey (5), NY (5), and MI (5).

One of the Democrats, Dan Helmer, an Army veteran and Rhodes Scholar recruited to run for Congress by the bipartisan leadership organization New Politics, grabbed headlines for a television ad comparing Trump to Osama bin Laden.
