Trump tweets endorsements hours before polls close in Tuesday's primaries

Primaries on tap for Tuesday

State Senator Jennifer Wexton, the apparent frontrunner and only state officeholder in the primary, was motivated to take on Trump after seeing increased turnout at her town halls after Trump took office. Dean Heller, R-Nev., is expected to win his primary easily. And in the unlikely scenario that neither candidate reaches 50 percent (a kooky Bernie Sanders supporter and perennial Democratic candidate is also on the GOP ballot so it's possible in a very close race), Trump's endorsement could have a much larger impact.

Here are results from the already-held primaries in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and a brief run-down of what to watch across the country Tuesday night.

The objective is to ensure that officials are elected with an outright majority when there are three or more candidates, and to elevate those with the widest appeal.

A Democrat running for an open state Assembly seat is refusing to let the public view her old tweets ripping conservatives.

Heitkamp, a former state attorney general, is popular in North Dakota. She has also established herself as a moderate Democrat with a reputation for working with Trump and Republicans - something that could be seen as an asset by voters in a state that Trump carried by 35 points in 2016. Still, she'll face a hard general election against Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., the likely GOP Senate nominee. He condemned Trump's travel ban and support for increased tariffs. But Hillary Clinton carried the district easily in the 2016 presidential race, so many analysts believe an energized Democratic base could carry the day in November.

And keep in mind: Unlike the November elections, you can only vote on one party ticket in the primaries.

And in the 3rd District, philanthropist Susie Lee is favored in the Democratic primary, while Republicans could choose Danny Tarkanian, the son of the legendary UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, who dropped his Senate bid at the urging of Trump. Arrington tweeted on Tuesday afternoon. Rep. Jacky Rosen, D-Nev., is the favorite in a crowded Democratic primary field.

In his ad, Helmer warned that the "greatest threat to our democracy" today "lives in the White House", a comment the White House called "reprehensible" and "abhorrent". If Trump continues backing Heller in the general election, it will likely boost his odds of winning re-election.

Belangia is referring to the historic number running in Greenville and Spartanburg's House District 4: 13 republicans and five democrats.

"I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love", tweeted Trump, who was traveling aboard Air Force One after his summit meeting with North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un.

Sanford is one of several Republican candidates in 2018 who have faced criticism from the right for speaking out against Trump. Both criticized Brat, a member of the Freedom Caucus, with Ward calling him a yes-man to President Donald Trump and Spanberger calling him reckless. If he loses, it would be a warning to other incumbent Republicans who have criticized Trump in the past. Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats after the midterm elections to take control of the U.S. House.

GOP operatives said they were mindful of the threat of a Democratic takeover of the state, and had set up their own statewide election apparatus a year earlier than normal.
