Two Vulnerable Senate Incumbents at Center of Tuesday Primaries

House Races

In the U.S. Senate, Republicans are hoping to reclaim one of Virginia's two Senate seats.

In that pursuit he's drawn four GOP challengers, including Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant and Yancey McGill, a former Democratic state senator who briefly served as lieutenant governor. Nevada State Democratic Party officials, for example, say their campaign ramped up earlier than even the 2016 presidential election, registering three times more voters with five times more volunteers than then.

Spanberger is a former Central Intelligence Agency officer who moved to a private sector job with an educational services company in 2014. Both have raised more than $900,000.

Democratic Party leaders are deploying one of their most aggressive get-out-the-vote efforts for a Nevada midterm. At the time, Brat was a little-known economics professor at Randolph-Macon College, a small liberal arts school north of Richmond.

With Trump fealty the most potent political issue in GOP primaries this year, Sanford has been forced to spend heavily on TV ads touting his alignment with Trump on some key policies, while looking to paper over his many disagreements with the president.

In an interview over the weekend, Sanford told Politico his disagreements with President Donald Trump are not personal.

Also campaigning are Libertarian Joe Walton and Helen Alli.

Heller narrowly won his seat in 2012 against Democrat Shelley Berkley, who was hampered by ethics questions.

Comstock is considered vulnerable because the district has shown a willingness to vote for Democrats. Now, six of them are fighting to take it back. Heidi Heitkamp, at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, North Dakota, U.S. April 7, 2018.

The objective is to ensure that officials are elected with an outright majority when there are three or more candidates, and to elevate those with the widest appeal.

There's also a Republican primary Tuesday in the 10th District.

With both party primaries set for Tuesday, strong Democratic candidates are expected to emerge to challenge almost every major statewide office now held by Nevada Republicans, offering Democrats their best shot in years to seize political control over the state.

No Republicans filed to run in District Three, which runs from south Richmond to Newport News, leaving Democratic Congressman Bobby Scott runs unopposed in November.

Democrats in VA-10: Candidates are Jennifer Wexton (see my endorsement here), Alison Friedman, Lindsey Davis Stover, Dan Helmer, Julia Biggins and Paul Pelletier.

Of the four, Volosin has raised the most money - almost $43,000, according to the Virginia Public Access Project.

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.

Democrats in VA-09: Candidates are Anthony Flaccavento and Justin Santopietro; incumbent is Rep. Morgan Griffith (R).
