"I don't agree with all the liberal Democratic things going on in California", Margaret Gallistil said of casting her vote for Republican candidate John Cox. Will it make a difference?
Holding hopes of a "blue wave" in November, Democrats fought to shape the political battlefield in primaries across eight states Tuesday, none more important than California and New Jersey where control of Congress may well be decided this fall. Nationally, they are hoping to flip at least 23 seats to take back control of the House. "The Democrats are supposed to be the party of the underrepresented and the marginalized". All but one of its five Republican-held House seats are considered competitive and anger at Trump may be particularly potent in the state's many suburbs.
It was a different story in MS, where 66-year-old Gladys Cruz wasn't sure which Republican she would support in the state's Senate primary, but she wants whoever wins to firmly support Trump.
Finally, maybe someday soon in New Mexico the 283,481 registered voters who aren't Democrats, Republicans or Libertarians will have greater reason to care about those parties' primary elections. Democratic operatives have seen the possibility of a top-two shut-out coming for months, but aside from offering endorsements, buying advertisements, and good old-fashioned browbeating, there isn't much the party can do. In early Orange County balloting for that race, Republican small business owner Rita Topalian led the 11-person field, followed by Democratic Montebello Mayor Vanessa Delgado, Democratic Pico Rivera Mayor Bob Archuleta and Mendoza.
Senate - Dianne Feinstein had almost half the early vote, with state Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, in the November runoff.
Navy veteran and former federal prosecutor Mikie Sherrill claimed the Democratic nomination in a district left open by the retirement of Republican Rodney Frelinghuysen. That's more than registered Republicans and Democrats so the change might have an impact on the election.
The low margin for the longtime New Jersey politician could be a sign that he will need to do more to motivate Democrats to turn out in the fall. "Keep our country out of the hands of High Tax, High Crime Nancy Pelosi".

Power sprints to 102nd Indianapolis 500 win
Bourdais had led at least one lap in every race this season, and led for the first time in his career at Indianapolis . Patrick started the race seventh and ran inside the top 16 before getting loose and hitting the wall on Lap 67.
There is another kind of drama playing out in other states.
California is notoriously slow at counting votes, and this year is even slower since for the first time any ballots postmarked by Election Day will be accepted.
Democrats are also hopeful they won't get shut out in the race against Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), whose ethics issues have made him potentially vulnerable.
Menendez is seeking his third term and has establishment support, including from U.S. Sen. If no candidate achieves that, 1,000 delegates will choose a the party's nominee at the state convention on June 16th.
Democrats have aimed their most aggressive attacks at Rosendale, seizing on his background in Maryland and questions about his experience as a rancher. Dianne Feinstein, who is running for her sixth term. In the 3rd District, three Democrats face Rep.
Votes are being tallied in Alabama, California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota.
Republicans countered that the state should make the improvements with existing revenues, saying waste and misplaced priorities were responsible for inadequate transportation funding. Iowa now has a Republican governor, and GOP -led state house and senate.
In Iowa, 28-year-old state Democrat Abby Finkenauer was trying to become the youngest woman to serve in Congress.
