Republican John Cox secures second spot in race for California governor

Why New Jersey’s primaries hold the key to Democrats’ hopes of a House majority

Democrats appear to avoid lockouts in California primaries

"It looks like voters will have a real choice - between a governor who will stand up to Donald Trump and a foot soldier in his war on California", Newsom said Tuesday night to supporters in San Francisco.

What Tuesday's primaries set up, though, was a test of Republican power to back up the Trump administration.

California's unusual primary system allows the top two primary candidates to advance to the general election, regardless of party. She'll now face a July runoff against former Democratic Congressmember Bobby Bright, who is now running as a Republican and has attacked Martha Roby for not endorsing President Trump during the 2016 election. "Working hard!" Trump stated.

"The idea that somehow wrapping yourself in the cloak of Donald Trump is going to help you win in California, I'm trying to be diplomatic here, it's peculiar at best", said Mike Madrid, a Republican political consultant who opposes Trump and worked on Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa's campaign for governor.

Primary voters in eight states made their decisions Tuesday, and there were several historic firsts. Even Fake News CNN said the Trump impact was really big, much bigger than they ever thought possible. "It's kind of sad when they tout it as a victory just to get a candidate on the November ballot". Female Republican governors in Alabama and Iowa will vie for their first full terms in November after succeeding men who resigned. Democrat Josh Harder is holding on to second place with almost 16 percent, just ahead of a Republican challenger. She'll face Republican Janice Arnold-Jones in November.

Proponents in California said it would encourage more independent voters to participate in primaries and it would lead to more moderates winning elections, because candidates would not have to woo their liberal or conservative party extremes to win primaries.

‘Kaala’: Rajinikanth-starrer to finally release in Karnataka
Several pro-Kannada groups have also warned theatres not to screen the film if they want to avoid any untoward incident. According to recent reports, it looks like " Kaala " is finally hitting the screens in Karnataka from today.

And in the race for California's 53 seats in the US House of Representatives, the slate of candidates featured a plethora of novice Democrats looking to make a statement against Trump.

Democrats have already spent millions in California, hoping to take control of the House in the fall.

Newsom's begins the race with inherent advantages - he's much better-known than Cox and a Democrat in a heavily Democratic state. David Young will face Democrat Cindy Axne, who won 58 percent of her party's vote.

Roby was the first member of Congress to withdraw her endorsement of the Republican President in 2016 after he was caught on video bragging about grabbing women's genitals. If Grisham wins, she'd be the state's second Latino state executive and the first Latino Democrat governor.

What's more, Democrats turned out at higher levels than Republicans in every single contest in the state where there was a competitive primary.

The districts most likely to flip are the two being vacated by retiring Republicans, the 2nd District in South Jersey and the 11th District in North Jersey. The exception: Republican Rep. David Valadao's Fresno-area district.

Amazon to show 20 matches a season from 2019
Amazon also bought exclusive rights to show the US Open tennis tournament in Britain, as well as the men's ATP World Tour. It makes complete sense for one of the online streaming services to pick up a Premier League package.

In two of the three Southern California districts, Democrats were coming in second place behind Republicans, but the races were too close to call early Wednesday, leaving Democrats at risk of being locked out.

Democrats feel particularly good about results in the 49th district, which encompasses parts of San Diego and Orange Counties.

And for the second consecutive election, there will be no Republican on the U.S. Senate ballot in the fall, after Sen.

And in Central California, the House intelligence committee chairman Devin Nunes, a Republican, qualified for the general election ballot as well. Steve Poizner, who served as the state's Republican insurance commissioner from 2007 through 2010, ran for his old job without a stated political party preference.

It was a different story in MS, where 66-year-old Gladys Cruz wasn't sure which Republican she would support in the state's Senate primary, but she wanted whoever won to firmly support Trump.

Party members had been anxious they might get shut out of key House races. "In three high-profile House races, there are so many candidates from the two major parties eating into one another's support that the election results may end up owing more to chance than any discernible will of the people".
