Advance polls reporting high voter turnout for Ontario election

Democrats: Former Cory Booker aide Will Cunningham, farmer Nathan Kleinman, State Sen.

Some voters in northern New Jersey had President Donald Trump on their mind.

California Republicans knocked off a freshman state senator in Orange County, recalling Democrat Josh Newman after a campaign that focused nearly entirely on his vote to support a 12-cent-per-gallon gas tax. Her campaign received endorsements from an array of labor unions, progressive advocacy groups and several tribal governments.

Eight states are holding primary elections today, making it the biggest primary night of 2018 so far.

The race is sure to garner attention from outside the state because control of the U.S. Senate is up for grabs. Jon Tester and Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte. In a crowded and competitive race - and there are many - it's possible that two candidates from the same party advance to the runoff in some districts, leaving the other party with no candidate on the November ballot. The jury deadlocked, but Republicans hope to use Menendez's legal troubles to tar other Democrats like Sherrill across the state. The victor will face incumbent Gov. Kim Reynolds, who wasn't opposed for the Republican nomination.

Congress - In the 49th District, San Diego County results showed GOP-backed Diane Harkey with 22.3 percent, ahead of Sara Jacobs at 16.3 percent, Mike Levin at 15.9 percent, 2016 runner-up Doug Applegate at 14.9 percent and Republican Kristin Gaspar at 10.1 percent. On Tuesday, he defeated publisher Lisa McCormick, who mounted a campaign for governor past year before backing another candidate.

So, any projections on the general election yet?

Menendez will face Republican Bob Hugin, a pharmaceutical executive, in the fall.

While prosecutors had vowed to retry Menendez, saying it's "just a matter of when", the DOJ dismissed the remaining charges against him early this year. Hugin appeared alongside President Trump at the White House a year ago but has distanced himself from him since.

Officials in Los Angeles County said the error affected 118,000 voters and about a third of the county's 4,357 polling locations. Would-be voters, like those Tuesday in Precinct 200, should contact their county election office for help.

Poll workers at one polling place told TV9 that most voters seem to have heard about the new rule. The county urged voters not to leave without casting their provisional ballot. But Democrats, who had panicked that the recall vote would hurt their campaign to get a Democrat through the primary in the overlapping 39th Congressional District, were less anxious as the votes rolled in; Gil Cisneros, the candidate backed by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, had strengthened his second-place position as votes were counted across Orange County.

"I don't think the Democrats can take the House without New Jersey", said Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University. At the same time, Republicans face the embarrassing prospect of failing to nominate any candidates in marquee races for the U.S. Senate and governor.

In New Mexico, Democratic Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham won her party's nomination in the race to succeed outgoing Republican Gov. Susana Martinez.

Seth Grossman emerged victorious Tuesday in the four-way primary. Ed Hernandez, D-Azusa; Democratic attorney Jeff Bleich, a former USA ambassador to Australia; Democratic businesswoman Eleni Kounalakis, a former US ambassador to Hungary; and Republican businessman Cole Harris. The top two victors - whether two Democrats or two Republicans - run against each other in November.

Republicans hold five of New Jersey's 12 congressional seats.

"While disgraced Senator Bob Menendez was accepting bribes in Washington, Bob Hugin was creating jobs for New Jerseyans", Hansen said in a statement.

"The California suburbs are the center of gravity for voters rejecting Republicans in the era of Trump", said Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson.

Hugin barely concentrated on Goldberg, a former IT professional and construction firm executive.
