Wisconsin Democrats Win Election That Scott Walker Tried to Keep From Happening

Robert Monroe, 53, a video producer from Glen Allen, Virginia, said he voted for Abigail Spanberger in the 7th Congressional District because he believes she has a better chance of defeating Republican U.S. Rep. Dave Brat in November.

Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., addresses the crowd during a town hall meeting March 18, 2017 in Hilton Head, S.C. The Legislature isn't expected to convene again until January, which means Frostman and Plumer probably won't vote on anything before they have to run for re-election in November.

In Hampton Roads, former Navy commander Elaine Luria won the Democratic primary and will take on Republican Congressman Scott Taylor, a former Navy SEAL, in November. He faces strong challengers in Catherine Templeton and John Warren, among others.

Stewart, chairman of the Prince William County board of supervisors, surprised many by almost winning last year's Republican nomination for governor.

Brat, who shocked Washington by knocking off then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a primary four years ago, is an incumbent that Republican strategists are increasingly anxious about.

Schneider, his opponent in the general election, immigrated from Romania as a child and served 13 years in the Army, primarily as a Green Beret. The state is trying ranked voting for the first time - but voters are also being asked whether they want to keep that system in place. Now, Heller easily won his primary, and will now face Rep. Jacky Rosen, who claimed the Democratic nomination for Senate Tuesday. His staff anticipates a higher turnout because unaffiliated voters now can vote in the primary.

Establishment Republicans are also hoping to avoid a Roy Moore situation in their quest to pick their nominee to face off against Democratic Sen.

In the 10th Congressional District, a long list of Democrats are on the ballot, hoping to challenge incumbent Repubican Barbara Comstock in a district the Democratic party has in its cross-hairs. Republican Gov. Henry McMaster -- who endorsed then-candidate Trump in January 2016 -- earned a Trump Twitter endorsement in the final weekend heading into the primary.

In the Democratic primary, Vangie Williams won a three-way race with almost 40 percent of the vote, defeating John Suddarth and Edwin Santana Jr.

Primaries on tap for Tuesday

Jennifer Wexton will challenge incumbent Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock for the 10th Congressional District seat in the November 6 election. Two Republican statewide officeholders, Attorney General Alan Wilson and Secretary of State Mark Hammond, also face primary challengers. "I think she brings an interesting potential challenge to McEachin, on issues he's been able to own comfortably".

In another big Virginia race, Republican Corey Stewart - once a state chairman to Trump's presidential campaign who was sacked for protesting the Republican National Committee - won the Republican primary to face Democratic Sen.

GOP Rep. Tom Garrett's late retirement decision opens up his more heavily Republican 5th District, which Democrats will have more trouble putting into play.

Tuesday's primaries provide one of the clearest tests yet of how much GOP primary voters are willing to tolerate a candidate who has criticized President Trump - and the president was making his choices clear in the final hours of voting. Comstock will likely find herself having to distance herself from the president in the general election in a district that Hillary Clinton carried by 10 points in 2016. In a separate special election, Democrat Ann Groves Lloyd conceded her race to Republican Jon Plumer in the 42nd Assembly District. Hardy lost the seat after one term.

ME voters are deciding on a successor to term-limited, conservative Republican Gov. Paul LePage.

But Virginia also demonstrated the party's hurdles.

But Sanford's SC district is considered a safe Republican seat, meaning the outcome is unlikely to play a role in November's battle for control of the House.
