Hotly Contested Congressional Races In Southern California

6 crazy things that could happen in California's primary

Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker won his primary contest as did New Jersey Sen. If they return both ballots, the votes will not count.

The president also plugged California's GOP congressional candidates, specifically naming Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the No. 2 House leader, and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. "He will make a BIG difference!"

Yet nightmare scenarios exist for both parties.

California's top-two system can punish a party with too many candidates in one race. Republican registration has fallen for years and the party has not won a statewide contest in more than a decade, when Arnold Schwarzenegger was re-elected governor in 2006. While Republican Diane Harkey held a lead with 25 percent of the total vote, she was trailed by a trio of Democrats who had support in the teens - Mike Levin, Sara Jacobs and Doug Applegate - before the next-closest Republican, who was in the high single digits.

Tuesday afternoon, Fox said she had returned to the precinct and voted.

"I'm hoping that California continues to be a liberal bastion and be the resistance against the Trump administration", she said.

"I don't think there will be a blue wave at all", registered Republican Keith Smith, 66, said outside a Solana Beach polling place where he voted for Cox. The district covers most of the southern part of the state. In California's unusual top-two primary system, all these Democrats and Republicans are competing on the same ballot. Democratic operatives have seen the possibility of a top-two shut-out coming for months, but aside from offering endorsements, buying advertisements, and good old-fashioned browbeating, there isn't much the party can do. Dianne Feinstein, even at 84 years old, is expected to win the Democratic nomination easily.

Last year, California Democrats (and one Republican) passed a transportation funding bill that raised the state's gas tax for the first time since 1994.

In the race to succeed term-limited Democrat Jerry Brown, two Democrats, Lt. -Gov. Gavin Newsom got his vote for governor, Lambert said. He'll face the Trump-backed Cox, a business executive. Longtime Republican Rep. Frank LoBiondo chose to retire after 24 years in Congress, leaving the district up for grabs.

Media from across the country have tuned in to the race, especially since Denham in recent weeks began bucking his own party leadership in an unsual move to force a House vote on immigration policy. The party must wrest at least 23 seats from Republican hands.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed surprised and proud after comprehensive Lord’s test win
The Australian, rarely given to venting his frustration in public, added: "In a way, you nearly throw your hands up sometimes".

The low margin for the longtime New Jersey politician could be a sign that he will need to do more to motivate Democrats to turn out in the fall.

Voters head to the polls in eight states today to pick nominees for Senate seats, governor, and several key congressional races that could decide control of the House of Representatives this fall.

There is another kind of drama playing out in other states.

Local newspaper publisher Lisa McCormick, a little-known candidate who reported no fundraising or spending to the Federal Election Commission, pulled 38 percent of the primary vote.

Efforts to recall Democratic state Sen.

"Make no mistake about it: State Sen".

Menendez is seeking his third term and has establishment support, including from U.S. Sen.

Democrats have aimed their most aggressive attacks at Rosendale, seizing on his background in Maryland and questions about his experience as a rancher. She will face former Democrat Bobby Bright in Alabama's conservative 2nd district - where Trump loyalty has been a central issue. Roby un-endorsed then-candidate Donald Trump after the release of the Access Hollywood tape in which he bragged about committing sexual assault.

Five candidates are looking to replace Chiang as treasurer, including Democrat Vivek Viswanathan, who embarked on a 600-plus-mile campaign run - literally - across the state. That state also has a candidate who could become New Mexico's first Native American woman to serve in Congress.
