Pennsylvania's Primary Election is May 15


The Democrats' greatest advantage in terms of the margin is in Breathitt County, where 87.7 percent of registered voters are blue. Many registered Democrats are believed to have asked for Republican ballots on Tuesday in order to vote for the sheriff's race, which would have skewed the numbers a bit. Only 8 percent of Republicans said "yes", compared to 69 percent of Democrats and 32 percent of independents.

As of about 1 p.m. Wednesday, 403 of the total 448 votes cast were in the Republican primary, election officials said. Olivito received 964 votes from Democrats.

To the relief of Republicans running in November, he lost West Virginia's Senate primary to Patrick Morrisey, the state's attorney-general (Mr McConnell's gloating tweet read "Thanks for playing, Don", and depicted the Senate majority leader smirking in a cloud of white powder).

"Because we maintained neutrality, we were not pushing the vote out".

Ahead of the rally, Donnelly's campaign said the senator had voted with Trump 62 percent of the time "because he works for Hoosiers, not any politician or political party". Even reluctant Trump voters, who only make up about one-fifth of his 2016 coalition, are standing behind the President.

Brown, the Democratic incumbent, has always been tough on trade, and he praised Trump's moves to raise tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Among the voters were 2,681 Democrats, 1,407 Republicans and 62 not belonging to a party.

Democrat Matthew Nelson is running unopposed in Tuesday's primary to represent the 193rd Legislative District.

The big change is, unaffiliated voters are no longer required to affiliate in order to vote in a primary election.

"In a state like Ohio, Democrats need a significantly more engaged electorate than they had in 2010 and 2014", Kondik said.

"Ohio Republicans came out in force yesterday to register their displeasure with Sherrod Brown and his record of putting far-left politics ahead of the interests of his constituents", National Republican Senate Committee Spokesman Bob Salera said in a news release. ".On the Democratic side there weren't a lot of TV ads, there weren't a lot of attacks back and forth to kind of get people going".

The 13th Congressional District has a packed race with eight Republican candidates on the ticket, including: Eichelberger, Rep. Steve Bloom of the 199th District, Ben Hornberger of Shippensburg, Doug Mastriano of Chambersburg, Art Halvorson of Manns Choice, Travis Schooley of Quincy Township, Dr. John Joyce of Blair County and Bernie Washabaugh II of Chambersburg. It's tighter in the 39th District, where Rep. Ed Royce is retiring, but Republicans still edge Democrats. But it was not just voters on the right showing dissatisfaction: Sen.
