Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Republican John Cox

Despite Republican objections, the Congressional district boundaries drawn by the state's Democratic governor on the basis of an order from the Democrat-dominated State Supreme Court were in place in the May primary election and will also be in place in the November general election.

On the Senate side, Republicans will select from among three candidates their nominee to pit against first-term incumbent Democrat Tim Kaine in November.

Finally, in Virginia's 4th Congressional District, incumbent Donald McEachin is running unopposed in the Democratic primary.

Andrew Cochran is the General Registrar in the City of Roanoke.

The simple math-24 more non competitive seats are held by Democrats than are held by Republicans-and the Republicans have 69 more seats at risk in competitive districts than Democrats-suggests that the Democrats are well positioned to secure the net gain of 23 seats they need to secure a narrow 218 to 217 majority in the November 2018 mid-term elections. "Voters will be asked to tell us which one they wish to vote, so that we can assign them the correct ballot".

The Nevada and North Dakota Senate primaries aren't likely to yield surprises, but they will formally establish the general election field in races that are considered toss-ups. Taylor is running for reelection on the Republican ballot for this primary.

A recent court decision in one state-Pennsylvania-threw out those old gerrymandered district boundaries and forced new, more Democrat- friendly boundaries onto the state's 19 seats in the House of Representatives, which in turn helped put eight seats now held by Republicans-and only one seat now held by a Democrat-into the "competitive race" category. But Cramer is in his third term in the state's at-large seat, so he has strong name recognition and a record for winning statewide. As voters head into the polls, six Democrats are still competing.

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).

For one, Conway Belangia he said, "Both the Democrats and the Republicans have governor's races". Comstock faces a conservative GOP challenger, retired Air Force pilot Shak Hill, in her primary.

Democrats are hoping that the congresswoman's stated support for the president's policies will backfire on her in November.

In Arlington County, voters will choose between two Democrats to run against incumbent County Board member John Vihstadt (I).
