Scientists fare poorly in Super Tuesday primary vote

Democrats appear to avoid lockouts in California primaries

McCarthy, who placed first in his own California primary Tuesday night, went on to highlight that in November, voters will have the option to repeal the gas tax in a ballot initiative - a move that Republicans see as a winning issue for GOP candidates across the state this fall.

The party avoided its worst-case scenario: Being shut out of several potentially competitive races because of California's unusual primary system, which advances the top two vote-getters, regardless of party, to the general election.

"They know who we are, and they don't like us", former state Republican Party Chairman Duf Sundheim lamented in 2010, after Democrats made a clean sweep of eight statewide contests.

The NYT adds: "Mr. Cox's showing represented a major tactical victory for national Republicans as they seek to protect seven Republican-held congressional seats in California that Democrats are targeting as they try to recapture the House". This suggests a more competitive race than one might expect in deep blue California. While California is a largely Democratic state, Democrats anxious of being left off the general election ballot in key races in Orange County, a Republican stronghold. Democrats need to pick up 23 seats nationwide to retake the House. Republicans won 53 percent of the primary vote on Tuesday. 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".

In Iowa, 28-year-old Democratic state Rep. Abby Finkenauer was trying to become the youngest woman to serve in Congress. She breezed through the primary and will face off against Kevin de Leon, a favorite of liberal activists, who finished a distant second.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey fended off three Republican challengers, while South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem, another Republican, became her party's first female nominee for South Dakota governor.

Another possible female first in New Mexico: Deb Haaland won the Democratic primary for the state's 1st Congressional District.

"Donald Trump and the billionaire class should consider this victory a warning shot: The blue wave is coming", Haaland said in a statement. Fox News even salivated over the possibility of two Republicans running against each other in California.

In the attorney general's race, where Republicans also managed to avoid a shutout, incumbent Xavier Becerra leads retired judge Steven Bailey, who placed second, by 20 percentage points. "We anticipate really strong support in the general election as well". She said she isn't a member of a political party, but she voted Democratic on Tuesday. Democrats poured millions into races in the state, focusing on a handful of districts that voted Republicans into Congress but backed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. The Republican nomination of Donald Trump, despite his tepid support from Republican elected officials and his frequent breaks from Republican orthodoxy, defied the scholarly consensus about how "party elites" are supposed to have sway over their voters.

A Democrat-controlled House would likely stall much of Trump's policy agenda and could lend strength to any potential effort to impeach Trump if Democrats decide grounds exist, either by virtue of the ongoing probe into Russian election interference by special counsel Robert Mueller or other reasons. CNN projected Wednesday one of three Democrats will advance to face Republican Diane Harkey in November in the 49th District. However, it should be remembered that in some of these districts, especially the 10th and 48th congressional districts, the second-place Democratic candidate is only narrowly ahead of a third-place Republican.

Energizing that group is a top job for the Republican Party this year, analysts and pollsters in both parties say. He has about as much chance of defeating Newsom as LeBron James does of being invited to the Trump White House.
