California in spotlight as United States voters cast ballots in primaries

California in spotlight as United States voters cast ballots in primaries

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newson, a Democrat, easily advanced to the general election, with business executive John Cox coming in second. Analysts saw that as a positive for the Republican Party, reasoning that not having a candidate on the ballot for governor could have diminished turnout among party supporters.

None was more important than California, where Republicans avoided an embarrassing setback in the race for governor.

That was alarming because flipping at least a few seats in California would be critical to Democratic hopes of retaking control of the House this year and making life miserable for Trump, perhaps even launching impeachment proceedings against him. Even Fake News CNN said the Trump impact was really big, much bigger than they ever thought possible. "It's kind of sad when they tout it as a victory just to get a candidate on the November ballot".

"Donald Trump did not create the housing crisis, high taxes and gas tax that we're also going to repeal in November", Cox added. Female Republican governors in Alabama and Iowa will vie for their first full terms after succeeding men who resigned. Baugh's campaign threatened to draw enough disaffected Republicans to keep any Democrat from appearing on the ballot in November. Jon Tester, a vulnerable Democrat.

The results so far show that out of 117 federal and statewide primary contests with one or more female candidate, 59 primaries were definitively won by women, 34 were lost, and 18 female candidates are trailing in California races that have not yet been called, as California doesn't count absentee ballots until after the day of the election.

LeBron, Curry, Durant say National Basketball Association champ won't go to White House
And he did it all with an eye that looked a little demonic, the result of a Draymond Green finger poke in Game 1. Fast forward two years later and the Cavs are still following the same formula in defending Curry.

We also got a good example in California of how holding the White House can help.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% of Likely Republican Voters say they are more likely to vote this year than they have been in past election years. Meanwhile, in Alabama, Republican Congresswoman Martha Roby was forced into a runoff to save her seat, after she took political heat for refusing to endorse President Trump when the "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced, saying, "I can not look my children in the eye and justify a vote for a man who promotes and boasts about sexually assaulting women".

According to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, however, while six in 10 Americans are now satisfied with the economy, and a plurality credit Donald Trump for it, most voters surveyed prefer candidates who promise to be a check on the president.

Roby was the first member of Congress to withdraw her endorsement of the Republican president in 2016 after he was caught on video bragging about grabbing women's genitals.

The top two system could also lock Republicans out of California's Senate race, in which the Democratic longtime incumbent Dianne Feinstein is likely to face the state's former senate president pro tempore Kevin de Léon, a fellow Democrat.

Sons of Anarchy Star Alan O'Neill Dead at 47
O'Neill's Sons of Anarchy co-star Timothy V Murphy tweeted: "My good friend Alan O'Neill died condolences to his family". TMZ is told no foul play is suspected. "I'll personally miss knowing Alan isn't sharing the planet with us any longer", she said.

Democrats got good news during the Tuesday primaries, and they're getting good news again Thursday morning.

"Being at war with Donald Trump isn't gonna make anybody's life better", he said. In South Dakota, Iowa and Alabama - three states that have never elected a woman as governor - Republican women won nominations and are favored in November. She won her primary with 49 percent. It wasn't a coincidence, however, that no such candidate existed, since the New Jersey Democratic Party has a long history of clearing the field for its preferred nominee. This marks little change from August of past year.

Republican businessman Bob Hugin claimed the Republican nomination to face Menendez this fall. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in the 48th District and Assemblywoman Young Kim in the 39th, both Republicans, are projected to advance in their races, but their opponents are not yet known. Darrell Issa is retiring; so is Ed Royce. Deciding is hard (as we saw during the 2016 Republican presidential nomination contest) in expanded, networked parties because there's nothing even remotely like a formal hierarchy.

A key Senate race took shape in the heart of Trump country as well.

Tesla Model X In California Crash Sped Up Prior To Impact
Tesla's owner's manual warns drivers that the system may not detect stationary objects when traveling at higher speeds. In April, a Tesla Model S that struck a firetruck in Utah while in Autopilot mode may also have sped up before impact.
