Two Vulnerable Senate Incumbents at Center of Tuesday Primaries

Similarly, incumbent Rep. Dave Brat, a prominent member of the House Freedom Caucus, will have to face one of two Democrats - either Abigail Spanberger and Dan Ward - in the 7th congressional district outside Richmond.

Statewide, Republicans must choose among three candidates - Corey A. Stewart, Nick Freitas and E.W. Jackson - vying for the chance to run an uphill battle against Sen.

The Democrats and much of the mainstream media have been hoping for a "Blue Wave" election in 2018, where anti-Trump sentiment predominates, but recent events may suggest these national issues may be more of a "drizzle" than a wave, and former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has gone so far as to suggest that the 2018 midterms could be a "Red Wave" election, thanks largely to the mounting successes of the Trump administration.

Among congressional races, District Seven, including Richmond and Hanover, is among the most heated. Scott Surovell, left, and Sen, Lynwood Lewis. Trump has appeared with Heitkamp, and she was the only Democrat invited to the White House for the signing of the banking law.

Helmer went on Fox News's "Fox and Friends" morning program to defend his comments and accused Trump of not living up to his oath of office. Luria will face off against the slightly more liberal Karen Mallard, a school teacher who supports universal health care and who is a strong critic of U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

"With Trump, it will be so much more hard for Comstock this time", he said. One seat they're targeting is in Nevada.

Paul Pelletier, another Democratic candidate in the race who spent 27 years as a prosecutor, has taken a similar position, telling his hometown paper in MA that "there's enough evidence for the House to investigate".

If Fenty were to win the primary, reflected Condit, "I think she brings something very different to the Republican Party than the state of Virginia Republicans are accustomed to".

Better late than never, we guess.

"Congress isn't honoring their constitutional responsibility to oversight and accountability", she said.

A Democrat running for an open state Assembly seat is refusing to let the public view her old tweets ripping conservatives.

"This has given me somebody to vote for", he said.

Infectious disease scientist Julia Biggins pointed to her unique experience in her campaign video. "We have had it with career politicians".

Wexton, who attended the Women's March in Washington after Trump's inauguration and protested Trump's first travel ban at Dulles International Airport, vowed to oppose Trump and congressional Republicans over policy disputes but also said she'd be willing to work across the aisle on shared priorities, including infrastructure. This Vegas rivalry has seen some of the most hostile combat within the Democratic Party this year: Giunchigliani revealed that she had been sexually abused as a child after Sisolak accused her in campaign ad of having watered down a sex offender bill and "single-handedly protected perverts".

Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani announces her campaign for governor outside of Las Vegas Academy in downtown Las Vegas on Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017.
