Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Troy R. Bennett | BDN  Voters stream into the Woodfords Club in Portland

Republican voters were picking a candidate Tuesday for the U.S. Senate while Democrats are choosing candidates in competitive House races. The polls will close at 7:00 p.m. PT.

Dave Young - Retired middle-school math teacher and current state representative of House District 50.

Ann Groves Lloyd, the Democrat running in the special election in Wisconsin State Assembly District 42, conceded to Republican Jon Plumer, according to Lloyd's spokeswoman.

Voters casting ballots in a special election for an open Wisconsin Assembly seat say they are exhausted of all the mudslinging in the campaign, but they're divided on what the outcome may mean for the fall. The contests - in Nevada, Maine, North Dakota, South Carolina and Virginia - include key Senate seats held by vulnerable incumbents from both parties.

Hardy and Horsford will now face each other in a general election that is a top priority for both Democrats and Republicans this cycle.

It is the 43rd seat that Democrats have flipped since Trump taking office. The victor will face incumbent Rep. Dave Brat (R - 7th District).

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., does not have a primary challenger, and Sen. Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats after the midterm elections to take control of the U.S. House.

Heller was a past critic of the president but has become closer to him in recent months and helped deliver the overhaul of the US tax codes to Trump's desk in December. Wexton, who has garnered endorsements from a host of national, state and local Democrats, will compete with infectious disease scientist Julia Biggins, former Obama administration official and nonprofit executive Alison Friedman, Army veteran and consultant Dan Helmer, attorney and former federal prosecutor Paul Pelletier, and small business owner and former Obama administration official Lindsey Davis Stover to run against incumbent.

"We're honored to have the support of the president of the United States".

The candidates who win Tuesday's primaries will run in the November general election.

The victor of the Democratic race is expected to face Republican state Attorney General Adam Laxalt in November.

Jacky Rosen wins Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Nevada primary election.

Nevada is crucial to the Democrats' chances of winning back the Senate. Hill's campaign for the Republican nomination then was cut short by a vote by acclamation for consultant and lobbyist Ed Gillespie, who narrowly lost to Warner in that election.

Tarkanian, the son of former University of Nevada Las Vegas basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, has run unsuccessfully for several offices over the past decade.He is in a nine-way primary. "I'm proud of my record putting partisan games aside to work across the aisle and find real solutions, and I'm running for Senate because Nevada needs a problem-solver who will have the backbone to put hardworking families ahead of the powerful special interests in Washington. Sen".
