Polls Close in Pennsylvania Primaries

Democratic 2nd District House candidate Kara Eastman is hugged by her campaign manager Ben Onkka in Omaha Neb. Tuesday

Democrats need to net at least 23 seats to win the majority in the House of Representatives and the chance to block President Donald Trump's agenda.

Schriock said Pennsylvania, particularly the seats near Philadelphia, is "a huge piece of the calculus" for Democrats nationally, and her group hopes to see the party pick up a net of three to five seats in the state.

In Pennsylvania, 84 candidates are vying for nominations in 18 U.S. House districts following the state's court-ordered redrawing of congressional maps.

Primaries were also held Tuesday in Idaho, Nebraska and Oregon.

Meuser goes into the general election as a clear favorite in the new 9th District, which leans heavily Republican. Voting then picked up again after 5 p.m., and was steady until the polls closed at 8 p.m., according to election workers throughout the county.

OR is a vote-by-mail state, where ballots must be received by 11 p.m. ET. But the national Democratic Party may watch for opportunities here based on early polling and how other races shake out.

Controversial pro-Trump pastor offers blessing at Jerusalem embassy opening
Jeffress said he would "be thanking God for the strong leadership of Benjamin Netanyahu, who is absolutely determined to protect Israel".

Joyce won an eight-way GOP primary that, in a normal year, would be expected to be decisive in determining the replacement for the retiring U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster. Wealthy philanthropist Scott Wallace and military veteran Rachel Reddick were the leading Democratic candidates heading into Tuesday's vote. The redrawn map has made some districts more competitive. Former Allentown City Solicitor Susan Wild won a primary in the Lehigh Valley. The messy Democratic primary showcases the competing factions in the party as it tries to flip such districts. Lamb opted to run in a different district near Pittsburgh that is less conservative. Barletta was an early supporter of Trump's presidential bid and has fervently embraced the president's policies. Meanwhile, billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer's NextGen America has attacked Morganelli in the primary campaign as a "pro-Trump Democrat".

In several of those races, female candidates won the Democratic nomination. She is an attorney with Ballard Spahr and has worked extensively with nonprofits.

The new district is centered around DE county, but includes a small portion of Philadelphia. Former GOP Rep. Pat Meehan - who resigned last month amid a sexual harassment scandal - would have had to run in solidly Democratic turf under the new lines. The governor's race attracted a crowded field of Republicans. She has the backing of much of the state's political establishment, but other candidates could also prevail.

Dematologist Dr. John Joyce (21.9 percent) used a massive airwave advantage to eek out a narrow victory over state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler in the primary.

"You have had women candidates who really haven't been able to break through in general elections", Dittmar said.

State Rep. Madeleine Dean won the Democratic nomination in the open Pennsylvania 4th District, where she'll be the heavy favorite this fall in a district Clinton carried by 20 points.

The days of Pennsylvania's all-male congressional delegation have come to an end.

Nebraska: Will progressive or moderate win out? .

Social worker and political newcomer Kara Eastman has won the Democratic nomination for Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District. Bacon narrowly defeated Ashford in 2016, after the Democrat had served one term.

Eastman, 46, is arguing that Democrats have lost by not offering voters a distinct choice and is campaigning on devoutly Democratic themes such as single-payer government-run health insurance, gun control and reducing climate change. Trump recorded an automated telephone message praising Barletta that was sent to voters just before the primary.

Republican Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter is not seeking re-election after three terms. At least three of those candidates won.
