Why Richmond voters can only choose Republicans this primary election

Rep. Mark Sanford R-S.C. addresses the crowd during a town hall meeting in March 2017 in Hilton Head S.C

Sheryl RosenDem Senate super PAC reserves million in fall TV ads What to watch in Tuesday's primary elections Dems urge Trump to reinstate top cyber post MORE (D-Nev.) in November.

Susie Lee cruised to an easy primary victory in a key congressional race in Nevada, setting up a battle in November for the seat left open when U.S. Rep. Jacky Rosen chose to run for Senate. The contests - in Nevada, Maine, North Dakota, South Carolina and Virginia - include key Senate seats held by vulnerable incumbents from both parties.

On the Republican ballot, voters will be asked two yes or no "advisory questions" different from the Democratic ballot.

But it was Mr. Stewart, who almost captured the Republican nomination for governor previous year against Republican nominee Ed Gillespie, who most epitomized the pro-Trump wing of the party.

Democrats have targeted Sen.

Comstock fended off a challenge on her right from former Air Force veteran Shak Hill. Freitas has accused Stewart of showing poor judgment because of past associations with "hate mongers".

In District One, which includes Carolina County, Democrats Edwin Santana, John Suddarth and Vangie Williams are running for the nomination to face Republican incumbent Rob Wittman. It leans Democratic and her re-election in November is considered a safe bet.

In Southwest Virginia, two Democrats competed in a primary; farmer Anthony Flaccavento defeated millennial Justin Santopietro for the chance to challenge Republican Rep. Morgan Griffith.

President Donald Trump also endorsed Laxalt, calling him "smart" and predicting he would "be a great Governor. fight hard to lower your taxes [and be] tough on crime!"

State Senator Jennifer Wexton, the apparent frontrunner and only state officeholder in the primary, was motivated to take on Trump after seeing increased turnout at her town halls after Trump took office.

There is no Republican candidate on the November general election ballot.

Dave Wilson, 72, of McLean, said he hopes this year's elections send a message to the president that the country isn't behind him. "He's a TV actor", Mr. Wilson said.

The tweet cleared the way for Heller, who is expected to cruise to victory over four other GOP challengers Tuesday. "The guy - he doesn't know what the hell he's doing", he said.

"If you're not with my president, I'm not with you", said Johanna Ashworth, 35, from Haymarket.

Comstock has kept her distance from Trump.

"Why is it that us conservatives always, always are like, "We'll go ahead and we'll eat it"?"

Friedman, who said she made a decision to run for office in part because Trump "scared my kids", said potential Democrat-led impeachment proceedings in the House would be "one of the most serious moments in our nation's history", but wouldn't commit to voting for impeachment without reviewing any impeachment articles. "Our work is not done until we fix the chaos in Washington and replace people like Congressman Taylor, who have voted to raise our health care costs, voted to expose our coasts to offshore drilling, and failed to find solutions for the families in our community".

Wexton, after her victory, came out with a statement immediately attacking Comstock's links to the National Rifle Association.

"I'm prepared to make that vote but I'm not prepared to make a vote on something I haven't read", she said.

Aaron Ford wins the Democratic nomination for Nevada's Attorney General. Most of the women running are Democrats, although one-third of Republican women running have also won their races.

Spanberger told a cheering crowd at an election night party at a Richmond hotel she would flip the district in the fall.
