Voting underway in Virginia primary elections

Trump says Sanford "has been very unhelpful to me" and is poking fun at his infamous disappearance in 2009, when he was found to have been carrying on an extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina. Sanford was a vocal Trump critic in 2016, when the NY businessman scored a critical victory in the South Carolina Republican presidential primary.

Trump, who issued his tweet as he returned from his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said Sanford "is better off in Argentina". So how many voters will show up and vote?

The intraparty strains came on a day when other cracks emerged in the GOP establishment, all of them reflecting Trump's dominance. Jeff Flake and Tennessee Sen. The Legislature isn't expected to convene again until January, which means Frostman and Plumer probably won't vote on anything before they have to run for re-election in November.

The AP actually called the Democratic primary before the Republican contest.

Sanford was elected during a 2013 special election to the U.S. House seat he had held previously despite the controversy which led to his divorce from his wife, Jenny. Sanford has described Trump as untrustworthy and culturally intolerant.

Trump tweeted his endorsement of Arrington along with the swipe at Sanford.

Polling places will be open in Virginia on Tuesday from 6:00 a.m.to 7:00 p.m. Make sure to bring a photo ID.

There were also battles of Trump loyalty in the GOP races for governor of SC and congressional contests in Nevada, and the president also tweeted out his support for the GOP front-runner in the Nevada gubernatorial race on Tuesday. Nikki Haley as his U.N. Ambassador, allowing McMaster to ascend to the state's top job. He faces strong challengers in Catherine Templeton and John Warren, among others. Stewart is a far-right provocateur who almost claimed the nomination for governor a year ago and has attracted controversy for his defense of Confederate statues. Three Republicans from Turner - Angelo Terreri, Alexander Pape and Joshua Morris - are vying to run against former Democratic Sen.

Former Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, one of the last Republicans to win statewide, bemoaned Stewart's nomination on Twitter. The commonwealth has gotten bluer, but the GOP has only moved further to the right there. Trump won North Dakota by 36 points in 2016. Both men ran uncontested.

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.

Democrat Jacky Rosen will take on Heller in what will certainly be one of the most closely analyzed Senate elections in November.

Not all congressional districts have primaries.

Earlier this year at the party convention, journalist Leslie Cockburn won the nomination in Virginia's 5th Congressional District.

Women roared to victories Tuesday in Democratic primaries across Virginia on Tuesday, falling in line with what has been a national trend.

Jennifer Wexton has won the Democratic primary in the 10th district (98% of precincts reporting), to challenge Republican incumbent Barbara Comstock.

Among the local elections in the primaries are the City Council District 2 contest between Democrats incumbent Pat Gibson-Hye Moore and LaShonda NeSmith-Jackson, the four Republicans, Betty Dowling, Debra Dennis, James "Junior" Lawhon, and Benjy Walsh, battling for county auditor, and the probate judge Republican primary between Jesse Cartrette Jr. and Emily Jordan.

The victor of the Democratic primary will square off on November 6 against Rockport resident Jonathan Ring, who is running unopposed in the Republican primary.

Campbell spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a Senate bid before Cramer squeezed him out of that race and into the House race. McEachin is a former state legislator who is seeking his second term. His fellow commissioner Chris Giunchigliani presented herself as the liberal alternative, but it wasn't enough. As The New York Times recently pointed out, women running for governor haven't gotten the same boost as female federal candidates this year.

However, there is a real-world concern: when a jungle primary shuts out one party from a major race like for governor or senate, it tends to depress turnout among the excluded party's supporters in the general election, which can have a ripple effect down-ballot, even on races in which both parties have a standardbearer.

Allred still looks every bit the National Football League defender he was before becoming a civil rights attorney.

History was being made, in slow motion, in ME where ranked-choice voting was being used for the first time in a statewide primary election. Gov. Paul LePage, a Republican, is term-limited so the race is open for the first time since 2010 and the field is crowded. Republican auto-repair company owner Shawn Moody won his party's gubernatorial primary.

"The leading [2018] Democratic contenders [for governor].have pledged new spending on social programs", Reid Wilson reports in The Hill.

In the Democratic primary in this Virginia Beach-anchored district, retired Navy officer Elaine Luria, who had the backing of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, beat Karen Mallard, a public school teacher. CNN rates this race as Lean Democrat. He somewhat improbably won election to Congress a few years later. Ben Cline of Rockbridge.
