Tuesday was a good day for Democrats

  • Katie Hill said Mr Trump's election prompted an 'awakening'

Californians voting in this week's primary election weighed in on state propositions, cast votes for local leaders and determined who would appear on the November general election ballot. The ascendant days of the Reagan revolution are long gone in California. And New Jersey has four competitive House races going on this year.

Female candidates did exceptionally well in the elections held. Their opportunity to seize the majority includes seven districts in California that sent a Republican to Congress in 2016 but voted for Hillary. They're now outnumbered even by independents.

Cox blames state Democrats and his opponent Newsom for causing the high cost of living in California. But there are some warning signs for both parties.

Meanwhile, the broad outline of the party's message is taking shape.

They have outperformed men in U.S. House of Representatives races so far, driven nearly entirely by Democrats, according to data compiled by Kelly Dittmar, a professor with the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University. Even though Republican Diane Harkey was the top finisher, the next three finishers on the list are all Democrats, with Mike Levin finishing in second.

Trump's approval rating also has climbed-to 44 percent, but as Greg Sargent observes in The Washington Post, "That is not far off the approval suffered by other presidents who were hit by wave elections". "Republicans ended up winning in all of the seven seats they were trying to target.my numbers are well above we thought they would be and the Republican nearly made it in the general election in my race as well, so I'd say Republicans that were very motivated given tax cuts and the economy. that's something that's playing well in my community". Dianne Feinstein will be pitted against state Sen.

Overcoming Feinstein from the left is going to be hard for Kevin de Leon.

From the primary results in California, it seems likely the Democrats are further than ever from capturing the House. "The political pundits just don't get what is going on out there - or they do get it but refuse to report the facts!"

While all House seats are contested, Alabama, California, Iowa, New Mexico and South Dakota will also vote for new Governors, California, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey and New Mexico for new senators. Those districts could determine who runs the chamber.

'Relief for N Korea only after clear steps to denuclearisation'
South Korea's Blue House on Monday quashed suggestions a formal end to the Korean War could be announced at the Trump-Kim summit. Pyongyang has long argued that it needs nuclear weapons to protect itself against a possible invasion by the US.

California's unusual primary system allows the top two primary candidates to advance to the general election, regardless of party.

The new Journal/NBC News poll offers clues to what might work in motivating this group-and what likely won't.

"We would have loved to have had a couple of all-Republican finals".

"Republicans are getting the job done". Democrats hoped that race would boost downticket candidates.

Belatedly, the Democratic congressional campaign apparatus interceded with big wads of money to knock down Republicans and pump up favored Democrats, and it paid off. Republicans won't have locks on any of the districts, and there will be conventional Democrat vs.

Cox finished second to Newsom in the race for governor. "If we are to take back the House, we have to win multiple districts in California".

While the runner-up has not been declared, it is widely expected to be Kevin de Leon, who said he expected as much on Wednesday morning. The last Republican elected to statewide office was in 2006.

In the central state of Iowa, Democrat businessman Fred Hubbell will represent his party in the governorship race against incumbent Republican Kim Reynolds, who took over the reins after former governor Terry Branstad was appointed the USA ambassador to China.

The first is the aforementioned generic ballot; Democrats carry a 50%-to-40% edge over Republicans in the new NBC/WSJ poll. In the Senate race, incumbent Sen. Josh Newman, D-Fullerton. With state officials still processing votes by mail - an increasing proportion of the California's ballots - the picture remains hazy. But she isn't sure if he has a chance in the fall. If Grisham wins, she'll be the state's second Latino state executive.
