Colorado primary races are two weeks away

Democratic candidates in the suburban enclaves of northern Virginia are hoping President Donald Trump's unpopularity among the federal government workers who live here will deliver them a key House race Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) didn't want to call special elections for two Republicans, presumably because the seats were expected to flip to Democrats in the anti-GOP political climate.

The upset of Sanford, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, was the latest sign of Trump's firm grip on the Republican Party.

While the state's Senate race will be a marquee event in November, the general election matchup is pretty much decided. Allred still looks every bit the National Football League defender he was before becoming a civil rights attorney.

The Associated Press called the race for him at 9:30 p.m. PDT.

Corey Stewart, a combative conservative Republican and immigration hardliner who almost upset Ed Gillespie for the party's gubernatorial nomination past year, won the right to face Democratic Senator Tim Kaine, the 2016 vice presidential candidate, in November's U.S. Senate election in November.

In the 6th District, Jennifer Lewis won a four-way Democratic primary for an open seat.

A key measure of Democrats' leanings will come in suburban northern Virginia, where vulnerable Republican Barbara Comstock has a half-dozen Democrats vying to knock her out of Congress in November.

Longtime Register of Deeds John O'Brien of Lynn also will be facing a Democratic primary challenge in September. McMaster was one of the few established Republicans in the state to back Trump in 2016, and became governor when Trump named Nikki Haley as United Nations ambassador.

The two former congressmen wasted little time setting their sights on the November election, blasting each other's records in the U.S. House within an hour of being declared primary winners.

MCMASTER OF HIS OWN FATE: The Palmetto State is home to one of the most compelling gubernatorial contests of the year. Trump lashed out against Sanford, declaring him "unhelpful" in a tweet and referring to his 2009 extramarital affair.

The congresswoman on Tuesday defeated challenger Reuben D'Silva. McMaster must win 50% of the vote or more in order to avoid what would be an embarrassing runoff.

Virginia Republicans also will choose a challenger to Democratic Senator Tim Kaine, the 2016 vice presidential candidate, whose re-election appears relatively safe.

In South Carolina, voters were selecting Democratic and Republican nominees for the governorship.

DuWayne Hendrickson, a Republican from Minot, plans to run as an independent in the general election. Critics of the law say they worry about how it will be implemented and that there could be errors.

Arrington will face Joe Cunningham, who won the Democratic primary with 71.5 percent.

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 both as Lean Republican.

And in Virginia, incumbent Republican Rep. CNN rates it Likely Republican. Rosen, a freshman lawmaker, is vacating her seat to run for Senate.

There's also a Republican primary Tuesday in the 10th District. CNN rates this race as Lean Democrat. His central Nevada district, including the Las Vegas suburbs, gives Democrats a slight advantage, as CNN rates this race lean Democrat. She collected 99.6 percent of the vote with 397 of 424 or 94 percent of precincts reporting, according to unofficial results from the North Dakota Secretary of State's office.

Weeks into the primary season, with five more states voting Tuesday, Democrats' midterm class is shaping up to test what liberal messages the party can sell to the moderate and GOP-leaning voters who will help determine control of the House after the November election. If no one receives a majority, the last-place candidate is dropped and those voters' second choice voters get added to the original vote count. And Democratic voters typically aren't tapping the most liberal choices in targeted districts.

In Senate District 1, Republican Rep. André Jacque of De Pere faces Democrat Caleb Frostman, the former head of the Door County Economic Development Corp.
