SC primary voters head to the polls

SC primary voters head to the polls

Unlike the General Election in November, where the victor represents their district in the Virginia General Assembly or U.S. Congress, the victor of Tuesday's primary election only becomes their party's representative in the upcoming general election.

"Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received to many shots to the head by real boxers in movies", Trump tweeted - presumably a delayed response to DeNiro's Sunday night speech at the Tony Awards. He will be a great Governor.

Republican Congressman Tom Garrett has announced he will not seek re-election in District Five, which includes Charlottesville, as he battles alcoholism.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., does not have a primary challenger, and Sen.

Just six of the nation's governors are women, and candidates in three states voting on Tuesday are hoping to position themselves to join their ranks.

Two years ago, LuAnn Bennett became the first 10th District Democrat to win in Loudoun since 1978, but only by 150 votes.

The race to fill Rep. Trey Gowdy's seat in Congress is one of the most crowded races in the country with 13 GOP candidates and 4 Democratic candidates on Tuesday's primary ballot.

Democrats Hosea Cleveland and Mary Geren are competing for the Democratic nomination for the seat. If you take one, be sure tag FOX 5 by using #Fox5Vote.


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.

On the Senate side, Republicans will select from among three candidates their nominee to pit against first-term incumbent Democrat Tim Kaine in November.

The tweet could also be Trump's way of preparing to take credit if Sanford loses or goes to a run-off. Dean Heller. And in North Dakota, Republicans will pick Rep. Kevin Cramer to challenge Democratic Sen.

Democrats in VA-09: Candidates are Anthony Flaccavento and Justin Santopietro; incumbent is Rep. Morgan Griffith (R).

In South Carolina, Republican Gov. Henry McMaster - an early and vocal supporter of Trump who replaced former Gov. Nikki Haley - faces challenges from Haley administration veteran Catherine Templeton, businessman John Warren and others. 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. Wittman is running for reelection and is on the republican ballot for this primary. But the 10 also heavily favored Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, voting for the Democrat by almost 10 points.

"This is about a president who presents a grave danger to our democracy", he told ABC News.

Lloyd, a Lodi City Council member, told the Journal Sentinel that the account was meant for her friends and family. The victor of the Democratic primary will face State Delegate Ben Cline, a former Goodlatte staffer who won a nominating convention last month. Scott Hammond and former reporter Michelle Mortensen. He faces a field of candidates that also includes state treasurer Dan Schwartz.
