Primary polls close in key state for Dems

California tops a list of eight states with primary contests Tuesday from Montana to MS and New Mexico to New Jersey. If Noem wins, she'd be on her way to becoming the state's first female governor. Her campaign received endorsements from an array of labor unions, progressive advocacy groups and several tribal governments. Montana polls close at 10 p.m. EDT. The victor of the house race will face democrat Tim Bjorkman. Jerry Brown in the statehouse, and Sen.

Yet the state's unusual election laws complicate things for both sides.

Six names appear on the Democratic ballot for Iowa Governor, but only five are actual candidates.

Governor Dennis Daugaard can't run for re-election because of term limits and the Republican primary will nearly certainly determine his replacement. On Tuesday, he defeated publisher Lisa McCormick, who mounted a campaign for governor past year before backing another candidate.

Primary elections typically have less participation than general elections in November. It was busy at the county's Fiscal Drive election office in Santa Rosa where voters used the drive-up window to hand over ballots. And she had a reminder for any voter: Officials will do all they can to make sure everyone who's registered has a chance to vote.

This list will be updated after all results are in late Tuesday night. "Most people don't know that counties run elections".

With two terms under his belt, Senator Jon Tester has proved himself capable of winning in a red state. In all, eight states are holding primaries Tuesday. Joseph Cervantes and former media executive Jeff Apodaca, the son of a former governor.

Two Democratic Senate primaries are worth keeping an eye on today, though in both cases, the incumbents are expected to prevail.

Bob Hugin defeated Brian Goldberg on Tuesday. Hugin's firm, Celgene, settled for $280 million previous year over allegations that it promoted cancer drugs that were not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

A host of state Assembly and Senate races are also on the ballot, along with local elections in many Southland cities. Doing so would likely derail or stall much of Republican President Donald Trump's policy agenda, while ushering a new era of committee oversight and investigation into the administration.

MS is heavily Republican.

In the Senate, Martin Heinrich, a first-term Democrat, is up for re-election.

The president "touches my heart", she said.

Voters on Tuesday also will choose candidates in primaries in Mississippi, Alabama, Montana, South Dakota and New Mexico. Boyanton ran a low-budget campaign.

Hugin, whose company did not admit liability, appeared alongside Trump at the White House a year ago but has distanced himself from him since then and on Tuesday promised to be an "independent voice" in the Senate if elected. Jeff Van Drew was projected to win the Democratic primary. They include state lawmakers David Baria and Omeria Scott and venture capitalist Howard Sherman, who is married to TV and movie actress Sela Ward.

There are also two pivotal statewide elections taking place in California. Gavin Newsom got his vote for governor, Lambert said.

And the amount of money being spent on two Democratic primaries for PRC seats is probably unprecedented.

Trump also encouraged voters in MS to "get out and vote" for Sen. "Anything to stop Trump", the small business owner said.

For years sidelined on the national political fringe, California has lurched to the center of the fight for control of Congress. It puts all candidates together in one big primary regardless of what party they belong to. The victor of the Republican Senate race will take on Jon Tester, who's running for a third term in the upper chamber.
