In Tuesday's Virginia primary, six Democrats are vying to challenge the incumbent Republican, Rep. Barbara Comstock, in a highly competitive race just outside the nation's capital.

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". She faces Brat, who is seeking his third term after winning a stunning upset in the Republican primary four years ago over then-Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Hillary Clinton won Nevada by 2 points in 2016, but Republicans stand a good chance of replacing term-limited Gov. Brian Sandoval with another of their own.

In frustration, she held up an image on her phone of Ms. Comstock's statement disowning Mr. Trump during the 2016 campaign over his past lewd comments about women.

That's because Democrats Abigail Spanberger and Dan Ward are facing off in the 7th U.S. House District race.

He said he thinks Democrats are more motivated than Republicans, but that a "blue wave" might not be enough in a district like the 10th. And they probably won't take a legislative vote this year; the Legislature isn't scheduled to be back in Madison until January. "But with everything that's at stake right now, we can not let up".

With both party primaries set for Tuesday, strong Democratic candidates are expected to emerge to challenge almost every major statewide office now held by Nevada Republicans, offering Democrats their best shot in years to seize political control over the state.

"I uniquely bring to this race experience taking on big problems that other people had written off, following through to get real results that make a difference", Friedman said.

In the 1st, GOP state Rep. Andre Jacque, one of the Legislature's most conservative members, faces Democrat Caleb Frostman, former executive director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation.

In the 9th District, Anthony Flaccavento defeated Justin Santopietro to win the Democratic primary there. Democrats have long eyed Heller's seat, making him one of the GOP's most vulnerable incumbents this cycle. Shion Fenty is pushing for education reform and less government involvement.

This office is now held by Donald McEachin.
