Women Big California Primary Election Winners; Votes Still Being Counted

Primary ballots mailed; unaffiliated voters to participate for first time

"So much for the big Blue Wave, it may be a big Red Wave", he tweeted on Wednesday morning, hailing what he called "the Trump impact".

Some Democratic groups that help candidates win races have been focused on turning Republican districts Democratic.

Insurgent Don Blankenship finished in a distant third place behind state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey in the U.S. Senate primary. Now, he is warning that Newsom should be careful what he wished for, openly, during a candidates' debate in San Jose: to face him or Republican Assemblyman Travis Allen, rather than another Democrat, in November.

With the possibility of a Democratic wave on the horizon, Tuesday's contests will test voter enthusiasm, candidate quality and Trump's influence as the 2018 political battlefield begins to settle. Democrats feel that way in a country led by Donald Trump. Keep in mind, for instance, that there is now a Democratic senator from Alabama because the state's Republican Party could not figure out how to prevent its voters from backing an accused child molester, Roy Moore.

"The California suburbs are the center of gravity for voters rejecting Republicans in the era of Trump", said Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson.

At least two of their best opportunities to pick up seats in southern California, a Republican stronghold, may take days to be decided, but they avoided being blocked from the ballot in the vast majority of the state's top battleground districts. No other state features more than three such seats.

Sean Spicer, 42, a San Diego resident who works in marketing, said he voted because it's a civic duty - though he doesn't like California's top two primary system and said it is showing its shortcomings this year. Currently, two Democrats are separated by just 73 votes out of 105,000 total cast.

New Mexico: Deb Haaland is on track to win the Democratic primary for New Mexico's 1st Congressional District, which would put her on track to become the first Native American woman in Congress. Haaland, a former Democratic state party leader, hopes to replace Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.), the state's Democratic candidate for governor.

That's a nightmare scenario for Democrats in particular, who claim momentum in some suburban districts but feature packed fields in many cases.

High Court Orders Protection For Screening Of Rajinikanth's Kaala In Karnataka
According to reliable sources, Kaala , which was initially banned in Karnataka, will now release in almost 130 screens in the state.

In retiring Rep. Darrell Issa's 49th District, CNN projects that one Democrat will advance - though it's still a tight three-way race to see which Democrat that will be. That's money that Democrats would have preferred to save for this fall.

GOP gubernatorial candidate John Cox came in second in the primary election, securing a spot to face off against the Democratic frontrunner, current Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom.

California's Sen. Dianne Feinstein also fared well, and will face only a fellow Democrat in November.

There is another kind of drama playing out in other states.

The Democrat who faced a surprisingly close race Tuesday was Sen. Republicans hope to use the fallout to tar other Democrats in the state, including those fighting to defeat vulnerable GOP incumbents in suburban districts.

Meanwhile, Republicans are looking at Montana as a chance to take away a Democrat seat in the US Senate. (This was particularly astonishing because Iowa was one of the few states Trump lost in the nominating contest.) The GOP also won undivided control of Iowa's state government for the first time since 1998.

Democrats have aimed their most aggressive attacks at Rosendale, seizing on his background in Maryland and questions about his experience as a rancher.

Instead, the election's preliminary results - it will take a while until everything is counted and final - mostly showed all the things that haven't changed. Roby said she couldn't vote for Trump after the Access Hollywood tape emerged. Roby's top challenger is the man she beat to win the seat in 2010, former Democratic Rep. Bobby Bright, who switched parties to try to even the score.

In South Dakota, Republican Rep. Kristi Noem won the primary and is now likely to become the state's first female governor.
