Democrats got some good news on Tuesday in California, where they appear to have averted a much-hyped disaster and secured spots on the ballot in four Republican-held congressional districts.

As long as women continue to put forward ideas that resonate with voters, we will likely continue to see women enjoy victories at the primary polls.

Mark DiCamillo: Newsom had been ahead in the polls leading up to the primary, and Tuesday night bore that out. "When you combine the Democratic energy with the suburban independent voters who want nothing to do with a Trump Republican, you create a toxic combination for a Republican member of Congress trying to get re-elected". Dianne Feinstein and state Sen.

Neither party immediately appeared to suffer major setbacks. At least two of their best pickup opportunities in southern California may take days to be decided, but Democrats avoided being blocked from the ballot in the vast majority of the state's top battlegrounds.

There are now seven Republican lawmakers - from Rep. Jeff Denham in the northern San Joaquin Valley to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in Southern California - who occupy House seats in districts that Hillary Clinton won in 2016.

Democrats need to add 23 seats nationwide to retake the House. Jerry Brown, who is termed out, and 31 for US senator, including incumbent Dianne Feinstein.

Democrats narrowly avoided being shut out of the race in this district of almond groves and dairy farms.

National Democrats have spent more than $7 million trying to curb and fix the damage inflicted by Democrats attacking each other in districts opened by retiring Republican Reps. In New Mexico, former Democratic state party leader Deb Haaland won her congressional Democratic primary, putting her on track to become the first Native American congresswoman in US history. Among the top Democrats is Michelle Lujan Grisham, a congresswoman who'd be the second Latina state chief executive.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey fended off three GOP challengers, while South Dakota Rep. Kristi Noem became the first female nominee for governor in her state.

"I've never backed down from a fight", Newsom said, signaling the Democrat-on-Republican matchup this November.

Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker won his primary contest as did New Jersey Sen.

Barkat said in a statement that he was kept informed about development during the investigation and had not changed his routine. The vast majority of casualties have been unarmed, with journalists, medics, teenagers and two women among the dead.

Democratic Senator Bob Menendez won a spot on the ballot with slim margins for an incumbent senator (62% to 40%) after barely escaping bribery charges past year over hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts he received from an eye doctor now convicted of fraud.

There were other glimmers of hope, even though all but one statewide race was topped by a Democrat. And he's facing a well-funded Republican this fall, former Celgene CEO Bob Hugin, who coasted in the GOP primary. Cox also had been doing well in preliminary polling and received a significant bump after receiving an endorsement from President Trump in the middle of May. "He will make a BIG difference!"

But there are some warning signs for both parties.

Because of California's unusual primary system, Trump's party faces the embarrassing prospect of not qualifying any candidate for the governor's race or the U.S. Senate. That's up from the 7-point lead Democrats held in the same poll in April.

Even though some races were too close to call, Ryan Costello, a retiring Pennsylvania Republican, came out of the GOP conference this morning saying his party was optimistic at where they stood for the general election.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes easily cleared the top spot in their respective districts. The elections in California, Iowa, New Jersey, Montana, New Mexico, Mississippi and Alabama will shape the midterm battles that will redefine politics in the USA in the next few months.

Trump will not be on the ballot this year. Voters have five months to make up their minds.

"The overwhelming victory is a signal that fixing roads is a high priority for Californians", Rich Garbarino, president of the League of California Cities, said in a statement. Currently, two Democrats are separated by just 73 votes out of 105,000 total cast.

The president "touches my heart", she said. Jon Tester, who is among the most vulnerable Democratic senators in the nation.
