Women Candidates Win Big as Eight States Hold Primaries

California Primary Election Could Solidify Democrats’ Power

But that seemed to be more of a typical presidential boast than a realistic analysis of the California results. This is what happens to Republicans in Alabama who are critical of President Trump just once. "It was Gavin Newsom and the Democrats".

Voters in five more states, Nevada, Maine, North Dakota, South Carolina and Virginia, on June 12 will choose candidates for their states' November congressional races. That leaves open the question of whether a better-funded, more recognizable primary challenger could have beaten Menendez, whose popularity waned amid a corruption trial a year ago.

In California, Republicans avoided an embarrassing setback Tuesday in the race for governor.

Despite what remains an unclear victory for Democrats in California's house primaries, Republicans appeared headed to be shut out of several state races. But Trump saw the night as a repudiation of "Fake News". Party Republicans strongly support the tax law that Mr. Trump signed past year, though it is more of a drag than a lift among voters overall, the new Journal/NBC News poll shows.

Meantime, Cox made it clear he'll be fighting Newsom on taxes and California's high cost of living.

US President Donald Trump cast the night as a win for Republicans. Female Republican governors in Alabama and Iowa will vie for their first full terms in November after succeeding men who resigned.

The governor's race was one of many drawing attention to California, a state not accustomed to being a national political battleground.

Several Republican congressmen loyal to Mr. Trump also managed to chalk up large leads against crowded fields of Democratic challengers in suburban Southern California, including House majority leader Kevin McCarthy and Devin Nunes, who has been one of the Republicans' most vocal opponents of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Among those who prevailed on Tuesday was Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy pilot and federal prosecutor who is seeking a competitive open seat in northern New Jersey that Democrats have not held in decades. Unable to secure 50% of the vote, she's now being forced into a runoff to fight for her fifth term as Congresswoman.

According to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, however, while six in 10 Americans are now satisfied with the economy, and a plurality credit Donald Trump for it, most voters surveyed prefer candidates who promise to be a check on the president. The president's support may have rallied the Republican base around the candidate, getting Cox over the primary hurdle, but the association might hurt in the general election where the Republican candidate needs to win over more moderate voters, said former Republican strategist Bill Whalen, a research fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution.

Another possible female first in New Mexico: Deb Haaland won the Democratic primary for the state's 1st Congressional District.

Haaland said in her primary victory statement: "Donald Trump and the billionaire class should consider this victory a warning shot: the blue wave is coming".

"Republican leadership has fueled a supercharged American economy and delivered results for New Jersey families", Martin said.

Republican businessman Bob Hugin claimed the Republican nomination to face Menendez this fall.

This is Retiring Republican Rep. Darrell Issa's seat. Democrat Gil Cisneros, a multimillionaire lottery-winner, will face off against Republican state assemblyman Young Kim in the suburban Los Angeles-area 39th district where Republican Ed Royce isn't running again.

Democrats also appear to be more interested in midterm elections than Republicans. The second spot remained up for grabs.

But for the second straight election, Republicans could not get a candidate through to the general election for the Senate.

In New Jersey, Republican Steve Lonegan, who was critical of Trump in 2016, lost a congressional primary after his opponent used footage of Trump criticizing the candidate in his ads.

A key Senate race took shape in the heart of Trump country as well. Another 24 Democrats have run for state senate seats, the most in at least a decade, according to data by the nonpartisan political site Ballotpedia. Jon Tester, a vulnerable Democrat.
