Virginia holds a primary today; polls are open from 6 a.m

LAS VEGAS-While Nevada's political colors have been shifting from red to blue for two decades now, complete control of the Silver State has eluded Democrats so far.

The state's tilt toward Democrats in recent years gives the party reason for some optimism.

Democrats had hoped that the "jungle primary" held on Tuesday in California and its 53 Congressional districts might keep Republicans off the ballot in the 14 seats they now hold, but that hope did not pan out, as Republicans placed in the top two finishers who qualify for the November ballot in all of those districts.

There were exceptions in Cherokee and Darlington counties, where sharply contested local races had somewhat heavier turnout, Chris Whitmire with the election commission said.

Polling is also close in matchups for two other top statewide offices: attorney general and secretary of state.

The results will determine whether each party has competitive candidates and may predict whether the GOP or the Democrats will pick up seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. One seat they're targeting is in Nevada.

If you haven't registered to vote, it will be too late to vote in the primary, but you still have until October 15 to be able to vote in the November general election. The Democratic nominees will be the overwhelming favorites in November.

Belangia is referring to the historic number running in Greenville and Spartanburg's House District 4: 13 republicans and five democrats. He's a self-described inspirational speaker who has lambasted Comstock for criticizing Trump after the release of his "Access Hollywood" tape, opposing his efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and opposing the administration's proposed ban on transgender people in the military.




In that pursuit he's drawn four GOP challengers, including Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant and Yancey McGill, a former Democratic state senator who briefly served as lieutenant governor.

"I am calling to ask you to vote this Tuesday for my friend, Chris G. for governor", Clinton said. "The older people are ruling the country because the young people don't vote", said Mr. Berumen, a fast-food worker who recently moved here from California.

On the Democratic side, voters also face a choice between political experience and newcomer perspective. The message being put out: Don't let Democrats take over the Carson City statehouse and turn Nevada into another California, strategists say.

His daughter told police that Plumer, a karate school owner, threw her out of his house and threw his wife to the floor during a family argument.

"In 2014, we got demolished, and it was a nightmare of a year", said Michelle White, Nevada state director of For Our Future, a mobilization nonprofit for Democratic progressive candidates.

A former prosecutor, she said she wants special counsel Robert Mueller to continue his work and that "we need to follow the facts and we can't rush to judgment".

Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock represents Virginia's 10th Congressional District, which runs from McLean to Winchester.

If you do head to the polls tomorrow, don't forget to check your precinct, and make sure to bring your voter ID.
