Nevada Democrats Look for Sweep of Top State Offices

Nevada Democrats Look for Sweep of Top State Offices

President Donald Trump is weighing in at the 11th hour on a key Congressional primary in SC - and he's doing it in a pretty shocking way.

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.

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.

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

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. "Voters will be asked to tell us which one they wish to vote, so that we can assign them the correct ballot". Kaine, who ran as Hillary Clinton's vice presidential candidate in 2016, has held the seat since 2013. In Arlington County, voters will choose between two Democrats to run against incumbent County Board member John Vihstadt (I).

Lloyd faces Republican Jon Plumer in a special election Tuesday for an open seat in the 42nd Assembly District.

"In 2014, we got demolished, and it was a nightmare of a year", said Michelle White, Nevada state director of For Our Future, a mobilization nonprofit for Democratic progressive candidates.

The presence of the diminutive former teacher known as "Chris G" at his front door helped convince Malcolm Howard, a 32-year-old air duct worker who hadn't decided whether he was going to vote Tuesday, that he needed to head to the polls.

Alison Friedman, a former State Department official who worked to combat human trafficking, said in an interview that she's "always been motivated by standing up to abuses of power", before accusing Trump of doing the same.

"We came to realize that people were rising up and realizing that we can't sit on the sidelines anymore, and I came to realize that I can't do that either", she said in an interview. Comstock has represented the district since 2015 after she served in the Virginia House of Delegates for four years.

As recently as the 1990s, Democrats and Republicans were fairly even divided in Nevada, a state that had supported Republican presidents including Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and his son, George W. Bush. The victor will challenge GOP Representative Dave Brat, who is seen as potentially vulnerable.

Additionally, Republican voters across Virginia must decide which candidate will face Democratic incumbent Sen. The front-runner is Elaine Luria, a Navy veteran and businesswoman who's been endorsed by the party.

He will face off against Arrington, a state representative, in Tuesday's GOP primary for South Carolina's 1st District.

Most of these states have interesting and competitive races, but not North Dakota. Tarkanian narrowly lost to Rosen in 2016 and was considering challenging Heller from the right until Trump urged him to back away from a primary battle.
