What's at stake in Nevada's primary elections Tuesday

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. He will be a great Governor.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., does not have a primary challenger, and Sen. There are primaries Tuesday night in three of those seats.

Two other congressional races in Virginia will also be closely watched.

In the 6th District, which includes the Republican-leaning Shenandoah Valley, four Democrats - Sergio A. Coppola II, Jennifer Lynn Lewis, Peter J. Volosin and Charlotte Ann Moore - are running for the open seat now held by retiring Republican Bob Goodlatte.

"There's the potential absolutely of Nevada turning blue this year, if they can get the turnout", said David Damore, a political-science professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The race receiving the most scrutiny is the 10th Congressional District, where six Democrats are vying for the chance to take on two-term GOP incumbent Barbara Comstock. In the 4th District, vacated by retiring Rep. Ruben Kihuen, two former congressmen - Democrat Steven Horsford and Republican Cresent Hardy - are the favorites.

The District Four congressional seat, including Chesterfield and Powhatan, is now held by Democrat Don McEachin. Since Mr. Trump has been in office, Sanford has been a vocal critic.

Additionally, Republican voters across Virginia must decide which candidate will face Democratic incumbent Sen.

While they have focused their campaigns on health care, gun control and the GOP tax law - along with Comstock's record of largely voting in line with Trump - the Democrats, in interviews with ABC News, differentiated themselves with various ideas about on how to best challenge the president and hold him accountable. In the swing state of Nevada, Democratic Representative Jacky Rosen is expected to sail to the nomination to face vulnerable Republican Senator Dean Heller.

Tuesday's elections in ME are notable not so much because of who's running but because of how the election itself will unfold.

A little after 4 p.m., Trump tweeted his disdain for incumbent Republican Rep. Mark Sanford, the former governor of SC who has voiced his disdain for Trump in the past. Jackson ran for Virginian's lieutenant governor in 2013 and won the Republican primary before losing in the general election to Democrat Ralph Northam. If he fails to top 50%, it would catapult him into a one-on-one runoff.

Helmer said he would support impeaching Trump without hesitation, accusing him of violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution and obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey. Scott Hammond and former reporter Michelle Mortensen.

Republicans, meanwhile, appear poised to nominate Adam Laxalt, the state's attorney general and the son of former New Mexico Sen. He faces a field of candidates that also includes state treasurer Dan Schwartz.
