All eyes on California on the biggest primary night of 2018

But the contest for the US House of Representatives is the spotlight in the blue state as Democrats look to blunt Trump's presidency by taking control of the House.

California governor candidate Gavin Newsom speakS to the media after voting at the Masonic Center on Tuesday in Larkspur.

He also called on voters to support Republican John Cox for governor in California, a state he called "High Tax, High Crime California".

In the race for Governor, Democrat Gavin Newsom's first-place finish over a field of 27 candidates was expected.

The survey comes after the biggest midterm primary night of 2018, which included races for 85 congressional districts. On June 5th., vote for GOP Gubernatorial Candidate JOHN COX, a really good and highly competent man. No other state features more than three. If she wins in November, she would be the first Korean-American woman in Congress.

Neither party immediately appeared to suffer major setbacks.

Sean Spicer, 42, a San Diego resident who works in marketing, also 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.

With 40 million people, the world's fifth largest economy, and a state government lead by a majority of Democrats in every branch, California liberals find themselves in a unique position to stand against Republicans in Washington on major issues such as climate change, healthcare, and net neutrality.

"Nothing is for certain but if I had to guess, I had to say the speculation about Democratic self-immolation was slightly overhyped", said Brian Brokaw, a Democratic strategist in California.

In the House, things are looking better for New Jersey Democrats.

This is the second election voters have had even more time to get their ballots in because of a new law passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov.

In Alabama, four-term Republican Rep. Martha Roby was forced into a runoff election next month after failing to win 50 percent of her party's vote.

After an endorsement from Donald Trump last week, Cox, a successful businessman from IL, is polling in second placed as of last Thursday with 20% support, successfully seeming to consolidate the Republican vote.

The 25th District that runs through northern Los Angeles County and a thin strip of Ventura County has a Democratic registration edge but a Republican congressman, Rep. Steve Knight. She's seeking the GOP nomination for governor against Attorney General Marty Jackley, who's tried to tar her as part of the D.C. establishment. If Grisham wins, she'll be the state's second Latino state executive.

In Iowa, Democrats Cindy Axne and Abby Finkenauer could become the state's first female House members.

Haaland's candidacy also puts her on track to be the first Native American woman to serve in Congress. The Republican came under fire from conservatives after she said she wouldn't vote for Trump after the release of the so-called Access Hollywood video in October 2016 in which Trump made vulgar comments about women.

Another congresswoman, South Dakota's Kristi Noem, won her state's Republican gubernatorial primary. Republican businessman Bob Hugin claimed the Republican nomination Tuesday and will face Menendez this fall.

Recognising the high stakes in California, Trump sought to energise his supporters in a series of tweets praising his preferred candidates. "He will make a BIG difference!"

Yet nightmare scenarios exist for both parties.

Because of California's unusual primary system, all candidates appear on a single primary ballot, with the top two vote-getters regardless of party advancing to the November election.

National Democrats have spent more than $7 million trying to curb and fix the damage inflicted by Democrats attacking each other in districts opened by retiring Republican Reps.

Political observers are closely watching races in California Tuesday night, where Democrats hope several key races could later play a role in switching the balance of power in the House. The second spot remained up for grabs. Nunes is a polarizing figure in national politics given his support for Trump in one of the many investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Almost two-thirds of voters recalled Newman, of Fullerton, over his vote last year to increase fuel and vehicle taxes to raise about $5 billion a year for road repairs.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, for example, most of the voters at Berkeley City Hall were dropping off ballots they had received by mail.

Francine Karuntzos, a 57-year-old retiree from Huntington Beach, California, said she has deep concerns about the Republican president - particularly his recent declaration that he could pardon himself.

They replaced him with former Republican Assemblywoman Ling Ling Chang, keeping Senate Democrats below a two-thirds supermajority needed to pass tax and fee increases for at least the rest of the year.

"I'm really, really anxious about our Constitution being ruined by this presidency", Karuntzos said after casting her ballot at a local community centre.

Newsom, the state's lieutenant-governor and former mayor of San Francisco, had said during the primary he preferred a Republican opponent in the fall. But investigators said she frequently used vulgar language, which Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon said constituted sexual harassment.

On this present political local weather, the California governor will doubtless proceed to function a de facto chief of the so-called "resistance" in opposition to President Donald Trump.

Montana Republicans were picking a candidate to take on Democratic Senator Jon Tester, one of the most vulnerable senators in the nation.
