Tuesday night's primaries were the first big elections of the 2018 midterms, settling nasty Senate primary races in IN and West Virginia and setting up Democrats to make a run for the OH statehouse. It's just a story that he was able to perpetuate that a lot of people bought. "My job is not to be a cheerleader for the president, my job is not to be a cheerleader for a party leader or a party". He also expressed hope that the Trump administration would "go after" pharmacy benefit managers. Republicans are vying to keep control of both chambers of Congress, even as Democrats have the public's favor in the generic ballot. Although it is hard to calculate how much Democrats need to win the House national vote by (which the generic congressional ballot is roughly measuring) in order to win a majority of seats, 7 points seems to be a consensus estimate with a wide margin of error.

Midterms, especially primaries, are won and lost by activists. He added: "Tremendous voter energy and excitement, and all candidates are those who have a great chance of winning in November".

Three-term incumbent Rep. Robert Pittenger of North Carolina's 9th District narrowly lost his rematch Tuesday with a Southern Baptist pastor in a GOP primary campaign focused on their evangelical Christian credentials and loyalty to President Trump. "This clearly shows that the November election is going to be a barn burner, because there's going to be big rifts in the Republican Party that are going to need time and attention to heal for the GOP to unify".

Greg Pence, the older brother of Vice President Mike Pence, swept the field Tuesday night in his primary with four other GOP contenders. He will face Democrat Dan McCready in November in a race that Democrats have targeted.

Ojeda previously voted for Trump but says he regrets his decision. Elizabeth Warren, a frequent Trump target. Jenkins came in second, earning 35,286 votes, or 28.02 percent, followed by Blankenship, who tallied 25,403 votes, or 20.17 percent.

None of these candidates ran on impeachment.

In his concession speech, Blankenship cited President Trump's Twitter intervention as the main cause of his defeat. The polls are also starting to further mirror the divide especially in the wake of recent reports from The Intercept that the DCCC, or the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is starting to intervene in primaries nationwide to support centrist moderates over the liberal progressive candidates backing policies such as universal healthcare and raising wages. Republicans blasted out this statement in response: "Manchin received just 69.8% of the vote against Paula Jean Swearengin, a political novice running on an anti-coal platform".

He had served deployment tours in Iraq and Qatar, and also helped in hurricane relief efforts in Houston and Puerto Rico. Harter's mother made an emotional plea Sunday for witnesses to come forward for information to have the killer arrested.


Well, they didn't get Blankenship, and thus evaded disaster.

Taking the reins as party leader, President Donald Trump is returning to his campaign roots with big-stage events targeting vulnerable Senate Democrats and mobilizing his most fervent supporters on behalf of Republicans.

Instead, Blankenship filed his candidacy papers late previous year, which has angered many in southern West Virginia who say it made them relive the 2010 tragedy. But he spent more than $5 million of his own money on the race, allowing him to dwarf his opponents, GOP Reps.

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey claimed the nomination instead.

According to Roll Call, Renacci was brought into the race after the chosen candidate, Josh Mandel, dropped out for family reasons.

Republican leaders had anxious that a win by Blankenship would cost them a plum shot at defeating Sen.

In the OH governor's race, Cordray will face state Attorney General Mike DeWine, who defeated Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor for the Republican nomination.
