Democratic House race in Virginia highlights primary voting in five states

In a tweet sent at 4:15 p.m. EDT, Trump said Sanford "has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA".

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump said. He is better off in Argentina.

According to Politico, Sanford has launched an 11th-hour, $380,000 barrage of commercials going after state Republican Rep. Katie Arrington, is barnstorming his district, and laid out in a full-page letter to a local newspaper "the list of things I have gotten done" on behalf of voters, even posting his cell phone number in case they had questions.

The Republican primary vote is a test for the heft of the endorsement of President Donald Trump, who is backing Gov. Henry McMaster. Democrats need to defend these seats and gain a few others in order to regain control of the Senate, where Republicans now hold a slim 51-49 majority. Tim Kaine and choosing nominees in several competitive House races, Nevada and North Dakota choosing their Senate candidates and ME for the first time trying - and voting on whether to keep - a new voting system in which voters rank their preferences, rather than only selecting one. "VOTE Katie!" Trump wrote.

At least the Laxalt tweet came out no later than halfway through Nevada's election day.

U.S. House - Virginia 10th District: Northern Virginians will be watching closely as Incumbent-Rep. The Democratic primary is a competitive race now between Abigail Spanberger and Dan Ward. Geoffrey Skelley of Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball writes, "Comstock is a prodigious fundraiser and has a history of outpacing the partisan lean of districts she has represented, but the district's Democratic shifts in 2016 and 2017 show why she is one of the Democrats' foremost targets in 2018".

Similarly Rep. Barbara Comstock of the 10th congressional district in the Washington suburbs, often depicted as a GOP moderate, faces fierce primary opposition from a right-wing underdog named Shak Hill. 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. But if not, the lowest vote-getter is eliminated and their votes reallocated until one contender gains a majority. Tim Kaine (D- Virginia), those candidates have already won their party's nominations. None of the three Senate candidates appears to match that region.

Additionally, Republican voters across Virginia must decide which candidate will face Democratic incumbent Sen. No Republican challenger filed to face him. One is Sen Heidi Heitkamp's seat in North Dakota. But the primary remains important because the turnout for Kaine will provide clues about enthusiasm on the left headed into the general election this fall.

Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., a vocal Trump critic, is facing a serious challenge from Republican state Rep. Katie Arrington, a Trump supporter who has attacked the state's former governor for being too critical of the president. National Republicans have weighed in on the race, with Sen.

Helmer said he would support impeaching Trump without hesitation, accusing him of violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution and obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey.
