Women Candidates Win Big in NC, WV, Ohio and Indiana Primary Races

The Latest: Ojeda gets voter's support over Senate work

Manchin coasted to the Democratic nomination Tuesday but remains a top Republican target given his state's heavy GOP lean and overwhelming support for Trump.

LAW: Well, I think mid-term elections generally are a first job review on a president's performance.

"Our polls are close", Morrisey told CNN on Sunday.

What does all of this spin have in common?

An Ohio state senator won the Republican primary to succeed retiring Rep.

On Wednesday, both Gardner and Bliss pointed to results in OH, the week's busiest primary state, as proof that Democratic turnout was flagging.

Manchin's unknown and virtually penniless opponent ended up surpassing 30 percent of the primary vote. "Maybe the wave is going to skip OH".

Looking at the races more closely, however, the story line is a little more complex.

It might be somewhat worrying for Democrats that more Republicans turned out for the open OH gubernatorial primary than one that got as much attention as the Cordray-Kucinich contest. Both parties' overall turnout, unsurprisingly, was way down.

Republican voters rejected ex-convict Don Blankenship in a West Virginia Senate primary in which he sold himself as "Trumpier than Trump" but was vigorously opposed by Trump himself.

Former Ohio State University football star Anthony Gonzalez won the Republican nomination to succeed Renacci in Ohio's U.S. House District 16 following a three-way contest in which state Rep. Christina Hagan aligned herself closely with Trump's agenda.

"We had no time (to react)", Thomas said. You run against Washington. Crooks, 35, will face Republican state Rep. Bill Reineke.

The results represent a stunning rebuke of two sitting congressmen and a powerful indicator that the anti-establishment sentiment remains strong among Hoosier Republicans who helped catapult Donald Trump into the White House two years ago. There's other evidence in the poll that suggests that among those most excited about the midterms, Democrats still carry a double-digit edge, for one. In Indiana, 506,492 votes were cast in a three-way Senate primary.

Myth #2: Democrats are being dragged down by primaries. It's just a story that he was able to perpetuate that a lot of people bought.

Manchin added that he is one Democrat who will pledge to support Trump's nominee for Central Intelligence Agency director, Gina Haspel.

Midterms, especially primaries, are won and lost by activists. Tremendous voter energy and excitement, and all candidates are those who have a great chance of winning in November. Women made up about 20 percent of House candidates in OH, 18 percent in North Carolina, and 17 percent in Indiana.

On behalf of the national Republican Party, Mountain Families PAC spent about $1.33 million advertising exclusively against Blankenship, reminding voters of his criminal history and water pollution caused by his mines. "When he's in IN he acts like one of us, but in Washington he votes against us, against President Trump and in lockstep with the Democrats", Braun said. Richard Ojeda, a hard-to-define populist candidate who nonetheless voted for Trump over Clinton. The party coalesced around state Rep. Jim Renacci as their pick, with Renacci winning almost half the vote in a five-way primary.

The biggest Republican loser of the night was actually on the House side: Rep. Robert Pittenger was ousted in a primary by pastor Mark Harris in North Carolina's 9th District, which stretches southeast of Charlotte.

None of these candidates ran on impeachment.

Given the centrality of the Trump administration in the primaries, as well as public contentment with the direction of the country, running purely on opposition to President Trump is not enough.

Myth #3: Republicans got exactly the candidates they wanted. "They are showing that Blankenship and I are tied".

But in IN, the Republican Senate nomination did land with a self-funding businessman who mocked his two main opponents - both sitting House members - as creatures of the establishment who look, vote, and even dress alike. The newly-minted nominee showered praise last month on Trump's commitment to West Virginia, saying his "policies really have made an incredible difference in our state".

Morrisey also outdistanced congressman Evan Jenkins and three others in Tuesday's race. For example, a liberal dark money group allied with Senate Democrats has run more than 5,700 ads so far in 2018.

Republicans avoided their biggest potential disaster in a key Senate race, while Democrats saw their own promising field of candidates lock into place.

In Ohio, Democrats pointed out that Renacci - who jumped into the race after longtime rising star Josh Mandel quit it for personal reasons - had only muddled through.

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