Villaraigosa Reported Struggling To Stay Alive In Governor’s Race

  • Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom speaks at a campaign rally in Burbank Calif

In some areas, the large number of Democratic candidates risked splintering the party's vote - though the same quirk also threatened to eliminate Republican John Cox from the race for Governor.

Trump also tweeted about voter turnout in California's jungle primary races, saying, "more Republican voters showed up yesterday than the Fake News thought possible".

Ed Royce and Darrell Issa are retiring, respectively and the 48th district, where Rep. Dana Rohrbacher is running for a 16 term but is plagued by controversial ties to Russian Federation.

The race is one of hundreds of contests across the state that could solidify Democratic dominance and reshape the fight for control of the U.S. Congress.

Democrats made history in New Mexico, where Deb Haaland, a member of the Pueblo de Laguna tribe who won her primary in a liberal district, is poised to become the first ever Native American congresswoman. And because California accepts mail-in ballots through the end of this week, as long as they were postmarked by Tuesday, it could take days or even weeks to identify the candidates who advance.

LOS ANGELES-John Cox, a Republican business owner who has tried and failed for almost two decades to win elected office, snagged a spot in the November runoff for California governor with the help of U.S. President Donald Trump, but that support could hurt him in the winner-take-all race with Democrat Gavin Newsom.

There was an especially big sigh of relief from the GOP Wednesday after the party avoided being entirely shut out of California's November election of a new governor. In both races, Republicans hope one of their candidates advances to the general election.

Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor, was the first candidate to announce a bid for governor more than three years ago and was strongly favored for the top slot.

Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker won his primary contest as did New Jersey Sen.

Voters head to the polls in eight states today to pick nominees for Senate seats, governor, and several key congressional races that could decide control of the House of Representatives this fall.

If there was any doubt that the Republican Party was now the party of Donald Trump, Tuesday's results in a deep-red Alabama congressional race should put it to rest.

When Thompson decimated the Thunder two years ago, the Warriors rode the resulting momentum wave to a Game 7 victory at home. On Saturday when the Rockets were being blown out in Oakland, the Astros were dropping a game to the Indians in Cleveland.

Delaine Eastin, a Democrat, is a former state superintendent of public instruction. That made Rosendale the establishment preference. Jon Tester, who is running for a third term in a state President Donald Trump won in 2016. But this race will be among Republicans' top targets in November. But the real drama is the race for second place. He backed his former aide in January, traveled to Des Moines for a rally in February and wielded the power of his sizeable email list to raise money for D'Alessandro.

Haaland will run against Republican Janice Arnold-Jones in November.

In Alabama, four-term Republican Rep. Martha Roby was forced into a runoff election next month after failing to win 50 percent of the vote. Her opponent will be Bobby Bright, a one-time Democratic congressman, who ran ads accusing Roby of turning "her back on President Trump when he needed her the most". Keep in mind, for instance, that there is now a Democratic senator from Alabama because the state's Republican Party could not figure out how to prevent its voters from backing an accused child molester, Roy Moore. The result, she said, was "a victory for working people, a victory for women, and a victory for everyone who has been sidelined by the billionaire class".

Several Republicans are challenging Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, who succeeded Gov. Robert Bently after he resigned.

Elsewhere, San Francisco will choose a new leader following the sudden death of Mayor Ed Lee, and a Northern California judge, Aaron Persky, faces a recall for the light sentence he gave a former Stanford University swimmer who sexually assaulted a drunken woman.

Voters were favoring Democrat Luz Rivas over Republican Ricardo Benitez to replace Bocanegra, and Democrat Jesse Gabriel over Republican Justin Clark to replace Dababneh.

And in retiring GOP Rep. In the Senate race, incumbent Sen. It was a clear sign that a strong challenger might have been able to unseat Menendez.

Democrats need to gain 23 districts nationally to flip the majority in the House, and a key part of their strategy is expanding their 39-14 advantage in the home state of Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

Democrat Lauren Arthur, a state representative, led Republican Kevin Corlew, also a state representative, by close to 20% with all precincts reporting.

It was a different story in MS, where 66-year-old Gladys Cruz wasn't sure which Republican she would support in the state's Senate primary, but she wanted whoever won to firmly support Trump.
