Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Barbara Comstock attempts to defeat Republican challenger Shak Hill to hold onto Virginia's 10th District in the U.S. House. A recorded message from Clinton asks voters to cast their ballots for Giunchigliani in Tuesday's election.

This office is now held by Scott Taylor of Virginia Beach.

Fifty-one of the 99 competitive races are in those eight states-California (10), Pennsylvania (9), Florida (7), OH (5), Minnesota (5), New Jersey (5), NY (5), and MI (5).

Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C. - a former SC governor who has never lost a bid for political office - is sweating Tuesday's primary against a newcomer who has portrayed him as a disloyal Never-Trumper, Politico reported.

Both parties have contested congressional primaries throughout the rest of the state, but Comstock's district is the only one rated toss-up by independent analysts. 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.

South Carolina, Nevada, North Dakota and ME also will choose candidates for the November 6 races that could help determine control of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, including two of the most competitive Senate races.

It's Primary Election Day in Virginia, and some voters have reached out to WTVR CBS 6 upset and confused as to why they could only vote for a Republican candidate.

He's facing off against Mary Jones in Tuesday's primary.

In the second district, which includes the Hampton Roads area, both Democrats running to challenge incumbent Republican Representative Scott Taylor are women. Tim Kaine (D- Virginia), those candidates have already won their party's nominations. The victor will challenge GOP Representative Dave Brat, who is seen as potentially vulnerable.

U.S. House - Virginia 10th District: Northern Virginians will be watching closely as Incumbent-Rep. Arrington has sought to use Sanford's frequent criticism of Trump as a wedge with GOP primary voters. He is running unopposed in the Democratic primary.

Democrat Chris Giunchigliani, who on Sunday got the support of Clinton with a robocall asking Nevada voters to support "my friend Chris G.", has run a close race against Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak, who has the backing of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Now, whether you vote Democrat or Republican you're going to notice two questions on the ballot.
