Trump also urged Republicans to support the party's congressional candidates, in light of Democrats' increased chances of taking the House, where Republican retirements have made such a changeover more likely in the past year.

Much of Tuesday's focus was on California, however.

The key battlegrounds are seven districts, mostly in Southern California, where Hillary Clinton defeated then-candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race, making the districts targets this year. Ed Royce and Darrell Issa, and the district where Republican Dana Rohrabacher is facing challenges from the left and the right.

But Democrats may have gotten too excited about these pickup opportunities for their own good. In November, he will face Steve Lonegan - who has lost recent elections for Governor, Senate and the House - or John McCann who serves as the general counsel to the New Jersey Sheriffs Association NJ's Seventh Congressional DistrictWhat Makes up the District? The Golden State has a "direct primary", commonly known as a "jungle primary", which means the top two candidates will advance to the general election in November regardless of party.

Hugin has loaned his campaign at least $7.5 million and has pledged to restore dignity to the state. Republican assemblywoman Ling Ling Chang led in the simultaneous election to replace Newman. Jerry Brown in the statehouse, and Sen. On the Republican ballot, Gov. Kim Reynolds is seeking to complete her first full term as Governor.

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.

Democrats hope to avoid their nightmare scenario - the vote is split among a crowded field of Democrats and two Republicans get the only slots in the November election. Cox easily bested former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D) in the race, while Newsom cruised, as expected.

In the U.S. Senate race, state Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León has emerged as a fierce opponent of Sen.

Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker won his primary contest as did New Jersey Sen. The top two victors - whether two Democrats or two Republicans - run against each other in November. "He's one of President Trump's biggest backers and would be a rubber stamp for the Trump Administration in the Senate", he said. The Republicans struggled to recruit top-tier candidates, leaving the most likely nominees as state auditor Matt Rosendale or retired judge Russ Fagg.

Haaland said in her primary victory statement: "Donald Trump and the billionaire class should consider this victory a warning shot: the blue wave is coming". The jury deadlocked, but Republicans hope to use Menendez's legal troubles to tar other Democrats like Sherrill across the state.

Rousseau still was optimistic for an overall voter turnout of 50 percent.

Newsom announced his candidacy in February 2015 - more than three years before the primary - and has dominated the race in both the polls and fundraising ever since.
