Davis votes with Republicans on state budget

Nearly 100,000 cast early votes in New Mexico

Nearly 100,000 cast early votes in New Mexico

Let's take these one at a time. Proposition 14 was created to consolidate multiple ballots into one for statewide offices, legislative offices, and candidates for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

South Dakota voters will go to the polls next Tuesday, June 5 to choose Democrat and Republican nominees for the November general election.

Traditionally in most states, primaries are split by political party. California is an overwhelmingly Democratic state, so this sometimes means the GOP doesn't even have a candidate in the general election. The party has targeted districts that are held by Republicans, but that Hillary Clinton won in 2016.

But, Knight says he isn't anxious about facing one of them in November.

But with so many candidates splitting the Democratic vote, the top two candidates in several House contests could conceivably be Republicans, shutting Democrats out in what would likely have been competitive contests. They just won't be able to make amendments in the House and Senate. The way these primaries work is candidates from each party, Republican and Democratic being the two major ones, are selected by voters of that party. Ed Royce and Darrell Issa - are essentially must-win contests for the Democrats. The idea is that if they can knock a couple of them down, it'll improve the chances of a Democrat making it into the runoff.

After many protests outside his Vista office, progressive activists were delighted when he chose to retire - leaving an open seat in a district that straddles parts of San Diego and Orange counties.

How did California end up with a "jungle primary"?

But Rohrabacher's best-known challenger is his old friend Scott Baugh, a former Orange County GOP chairman. But Democrats could be ruining their own chances.

But Republicans shouldn't kid themselves: Trump's behavior is having a negative and potentially lasting impact on politics today that extends beyond the coastal elites and commentariat class.

Afridi to lead ICC World XI
The hard-hitting batsman tweeted: "It's a great honour to be leading the ICC World XI side, that too for such a good cause". It is learnt that Morgan fractured his fingers during Middlesex's game against Somerset at Taunton.

In the battle for the number two spot, two wealthy Democrats, Gil Cisneros and Andy Thorburn, engaged in one of the ugliest political fights California has seen this season. And two Democrats seem viable.

Democrats believe Republicans are unpopular across the country and in particular here in part because of issues like immigration.

What are the Democrats doing to keep themselves from being locked out?

Is California the only state that has a "jungle primary"?

One further source of confusion for voters: Two female candidates, architect Laura Oatman and tech executive Rachel Payne (who had been endorsed by EMILY's List) withdrew, but it was too late to take their names off the ballot. He has decried what opponents call sanctuary cities, saying that those who support them "are betraying the American people". Now, 77% of Republicans consider the President to be "morally strong". However, the state has lurched left in recent decades, and Republicans are all but unelectable when it comes to races for governor and senator.

It's fair to say that Congressman Darrell Issa was among the most reviled Republicans among Democratic activists in California because of his aggressive pursuit of the Obama administration while he served as head of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Democrats are running without an economic message, hoping talk of so-called progressive ideals will somehow be preferable to a good economy produced by Republicans.

Still, it's hard to predict how this will all pan out on Tuesday.

But early this year Poizner, who lost a 2010 Republican primary for governor to former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, changed his registration to no party preference as he attempts a return to his old insurance commissioner post.
