Neo-Nazi Republican Patrick Little Gets 1.2% In California Senate Primary

Democrats see their path to the House majority running through the two dozen districts that sent a Republican to Congress in 2016, but voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

Two hotbeds of competitive House races held their primaries Tuesday.

Sean Spicer, 42, a San Diego resident who works in marketing, also said he voted because it's a civic duty - though he doesn't like California's top two primary system and said it is showing its shortcomings this year.

Rohrabacher was facing rivals from both parties, including from former Orange County Republican Party leader Scott Baugh. Initially, Ryan Zinke - a former congressman who is now Trump's interior secretary - was national GOP leaders' preference for the seat. The jury deadlocked, but Republicans hope to use Menendez's legal troubles to tar other Democrats like Sherrill across the state.

In Alabama, four-term Republican Rep. Martha Roby was forced into a runoff election next month after failing to win 50 percent of the vote.

But Trump still lords over the party that he has reshaped, and loyalty to the president is key.

It's also possible Republicans may not secure a nomination spot in the challenge against 84-year-old Sen. But, with good reason, most of the national focus is on California.

Recognising the high stakes in California, Trump sought to energise his supporters in a series of tweets praising his preferred candidates.

"In High Tax, High Crime California, be sure to get out and vote for Republican John Cox for Governor. He will make a BIG difference!"

What's more, Democrats turned out at higher levels than Republicans in every single contest in the state where there was a competitive primary. While Democrats need only a net total of two seats to take command of the Senate, Democratic senators must defend a bevy of seats in rural states such as Indiana, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia that supported Trump two years ago. But he was on the minds of many voters. Thus, California Republicans will avoid the potential turnout-depressing nightmare of having neither a gubernatorial nor U.S. Senate candidate on the ballot in November.

"I'm really, really anxious about our Constitution being ruined by this presidency", Karuntzos said after casting her ballot at a local community centre.

Across the country in Montclair, New Jersey, Lynnette Joy Baskinger, a psychotherapist, said she's fed up with the GOP. "If our vote comes out, we're going to do very well".

She easily won her 2016 primary. "It came down to math, and the math was too tricky", she said.

Apple reveals watchOS 5, complete with new Walkie-Talkie app
Apple is also removing "Hey Siri" for its command for the Apple Watch, letting users just speak commands to the digital assistant. The first beta of watchOS 5 will likely become available to registered developers later today, without a public beta program.

England 2-1 Nigeria
I don't think we got a lot of answers though because Nigeria just lay down in the first period and let England do what they want. Over the next two-and-a-half years he made 88 official appearances for the team, scoring 24 goals.

The fear was especially acute in three districts the party has targeted to flip in November: the state's 39th and 49th districts, where Reps.

Yet the state's unusual election laws complicate things for both sides. In California's "jungle primary" system, the top two candidates in the primary advance to the general election, regardless of party affiliation. That allows the possibility of two candidates qualifying from the same party - and neither from the other.

Newsom had 33.4 percent of the vote with 92 percent of precincts reporting, effectively ensuring him of a spot on the November general election ballot.

Meanwhile, the Democratic candidates who had the lion's share of endorsements from party officials finished first in the primaries for USA senator and governor in California. Second place is far less certain. There are 11 unknown Republicans in the race and none was backed by the party. Ed Royce and Darrell Issa brought on a stampede of candidates, and no one knows what will happen in their Southern California districts.

That's money the Democrats would have preferred to spend promoting their candidates this fall.

But just getting a candidate in the top-tier governor's race was a crucial achievement for Republicans.

California has some of the highest gas prices in the nation, and the tax, which went in to effect a year ago, is a rare issue in California that seems to bring Democrats and Republicans together.

There are other kinds of drama playing out in other parts of the country. "If you judge the democratic party based on the back and forth on Twitter you might think it's a house divided". Republican businessman Bob Hugin claimed the Republican nomination Tuesday and will face Menendez this fall. Jon Tester, who is among the most vulnerable Democratic senators in the nation.

Democrats have aimed their most aggressive attacks at Rosendale, seizing on his background in Maryland and questions about his experience as a rancher.

No state will play a more significant role in the fight for control of Congress.

There's also a Democratic primary in the at-large congressional district to determine who will challenge GOP Rep. Greg Gianforte. If Grisham wins, she'll be the state's second Latino state executive.

Voters in Alabama and Iowa had opportunities to set up all-female matchups for governor in November.

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. Haaland, for example, served as state party chair before running for Congress.
