Trump declares primaries delivered 'great night' for GOP

Despite Cox's long shot, says Dunn, it's obvious from the election results that Californians are disenchanted with the Democrat-dominated state, and those that aren't fleeing the exorbitant home prices, and higher and higher taxes, could voice their frustration in the voting booth.

So many Democrats are vying to challenge Rohrabacher that there is a chance they will divide their party's vote, setting up a general election fight between the incumbent and a leading Republican opponent, Scott Baugh. "We're confident voters will support our strong challengers and incumbents across the state to continue that historic progress". He's been examining the pre-election polling data for more than a year.

In the governor's race, Trump-endorsed Mr. Cox finished second behind Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, and both advance to the general election, giving Republicans a candidate atop the ticket. How did we get here?

Like every 2018 primary election before, California's vote on Tuesday is now being interpreted as a barometer of the Trump Resistance.

Francine Karuntzos, a 57-year-old retiree from Huntington Beach, California, said she has deep concerns about the Republican president - particularly his recent declaration that he could pardon himself.

But Roby clearly has some work to do to get to 50 percent by the runoff on July 17, and the race will test just how short a leash a member of Congress who criticizes the president has with the base. It was imposed by a Democrat governor and passed by a Democrat legislature, and it is wildly unpopular. It was still unclear whether a Republican would earn enough votes to oppose her on California's November ballot. Dianne Feinstein, getting 44 percent of the vote. He's a rich guy who ran unsuccessfully for many offices in IL before relocating to California.

Incumbent Republican Sen. Roger Wicker easily won his primary with 83 percent of ballots. That's money that Democrats would have preferred to save for this fall. Josh Newman, a Democratic state senator, was recalled on Tuesday over his support for increased gas taxes.

Mark DiCamillo, director of the Berkeley IGS Poll. That is over double the $58 million spent in the 2016 election cycle. In particular, the party needs millennial voters and Latinos to show up at the polls in November if they hope to oust targeted Republicans. Currently, two Democrats are separated by just 73 votes out of 105,000 total cast.


The same dynamic can be expected during the general election campaign. Those who had primaries on Tuesday were largely successful. Feinstein received the most votes in the county, with 39.9 percent, while Republican James P. Bradley came in second with 11.2 percent. The California Republican Party later evicted Little from the party convention; party officials did not release an endorsement in the U.S. Senate race. How did this play out?

Because the state's so-called "jungle primary" is nonpartisan, two candidates from the same party can advance to the final race.

The governor's race was one of many drawing attention to California, a state not accustomed to being a national political battleground.

The San Francisco mayor's race is unique and very close.

The election of Trump "showed us that that was not the case", she said.

Right now, things are really too close to definitively name a victor. Mr. Turner served just three months in jail, sparking global outrage over what many felt was a sentence that was too lenient. David Young will face Democrat Cindy Axne, who won 58 percent of her party's vote.

A number of statewide executive offices, all 80 state Assembly seats and half the seats in the state Senate are also up for grabs, and five propositions qualified for the ballot.

How is that playing out? But that appeared unlikely, with some ballots still uncounted. That's up from the 7-point lead Democrats held in the same poll in April.
