Homeland security Official In Pa. On Primary Day

Phillip Aronoff

Republican Rick Saccone, who lost to Lamb, is seeking redemption in a Pittsburgh-area district that favors the GOP.

For true political junkies the evening of May 15 will offer a steady stream of returns, with polls closing at 8:00 p.m. EDT in Pennsylvania; 8:00 p.m. CDT in Nebraska, 8:00 p.m. MDT in Idaho, and (for the most part) 8:00 p.m. PDT in Oregon. Labrador was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, but should Idaho Republican voters reject him, it will be another sign of how hard running with Washington experience is for any Republican member of Congress this year.

Tuesday, voters are picking the candidates who will advance to the November general election.

Ellsworth is the only female gubernatorial candidate.

If any voter in Crawford County needs a ride to his or her polling place today, Crawford County Republican Party headquarters is offering free rides regardless of party affiliation.

Sanders endorsed Braddock, Pennsylvania, Mayor John Fetterman, who is running on universal health care and marijuana legalization, over Lt. Gov. Mike Stack, a Democrat. Wolf past year ordered an investigation into the treatment of state employees, including state police troopers, by Stack and his wife.

Democrats will pick nominees to challenge four other Republican congressmen, who will be prohibitive favorites to hold their seats in November. They must be delivered to an official county drop site. Michele Lawrence will challenge him in the Democratic primary.

Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Brendan Boyle is seeking re-election. There are contested primaries for lieutenant governor in both parties.

In the state House races, Democrats have no candidates on the ballot for the 6th District, 17th District or 65th District while Republican voters in those same districts only will see the name of the respective incumbent. On the Republican side, U.S. Rep. Louis Barletta of Luzerne County and state Rep. Jim Christiana of Beaver County are vying for that party's nomination. The sleepier Republican contest for U.S. Senate could play a role come November in deciding whether Republicans maintain U.S. Senate control.

Candidates for the state House of Representatives across the region, including four incumbents, are unopposed for nomination in the primary election today, but following today's vote, they will be back in the fall in their bid for election to a two-year term. State senate and state House seats are also up for grabs, but numerous candidates running for these seats, at least in the Lehigh Valley, are unopposed in their primary bids.

Another important Democratic primary in the Keystone State is in the suburban Philadelphia First District, where incumbent Republican Brian Fitzpatrick is now running in a district Clinton carried by two points in 2016.

The Deadline to register to vote in this election is Monday, May 21, 2018.

Knute Buehler, Republican candidate for OR governor, a state representative and an orthopedic surgeon, is the front-runner in his primary, though not by as much as expected, according to the Statesman Journal in Salem.

A more interesting contest comes in the northeastern district being vacated by retiring Representative Charlie Dent, one of the few remaining moderate Republicans in the House.
