  • Trump Blue Wave

Hill's campaign for the Republican nomination then was cut short by a vote by acclamation for consultant and lobbyist Ed Gillespie, who narrowly lost to Warner in that election.

Fifty-one of the 99 competitive races are in those eight states-California (10), Pennsylvania (9), Florida (7), OH (5), Minnesota (5), New Jersey (5), NY (5), and MI (5).

Before casting a ballot, Virginia voters in the primary election must declare whether they want a Republican or Democratic ballot.

In North Dakota and Nevada, voters will set the stage for two of the most competitive U.S. Senate races in November, when Democrats must pick up two seats to capture a Senate majority.

With both party primaries set for Tuesday, strong Democratic candidates are expected to emerge to challenge almost every major statewide office now held by Nevada Republicans, offering Democrats their best shot in years to seize political control over the state.

Democrats have targeted Comstock as a vulnerable seat in the House of Representatives. Also running is Nick Freitas, a U.S. Army veteran who represents 30th District in the House of Delegates.

State Senator Jennifer Wexton is considered a slight favorite to face Comstock after gaining the endorsement of Governor Ralph Northam and other Democratic Party leaders.

Democrats have already nominated Leslie Cockburn at a party convention in the fifth district, which leans Republican but is losing incumbent GOP Representative Tom Garrett, who cited a drinking problem in his decision not to run again.

FILE PHOTO: Representative Kevin Cramer (R-ND), with his wife Kris and sons Abel and Beau, cheer after the party endorsed Cramer for the U.S. Senate race against Democratic Sen. The victor will challenge GOP Representative Dave Brat, who is seen as potentially vulnerable. The victor will face incumbent Rep. Dave Brat (R - 7th District). Arrington has sought to use Sanford's frequent criticism of Trump as a wedge with GOP primary voters.

Comstock's suburban House district outside Washington, home to many federal government workers, was carried by Democrat Hillary Clinton over Republican Donald Trump by 10 percentage points in the 2016 presidential election. It lets voters rank candidates by preference rather than choosing just one. Gov. Sandoval, who is leaving after serving a maximum two terms, cruised to re-election in 2014 after no high-profile Democrats emerged to oppose him.

On a recent day Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ms. Giunchigliani donned sneakers and a sun hat to knock on doors in one lower-income neighborhood to persuade voters to choose her to run against Mr. Laxalt.
