Virginia holds a primary today; polls are open from 6 a.m

The outcome of each of these competitive House races will be influenced by three types of issues: some that are local and specific to that district, some that are statewide and specific to that state, and some that are national in nature.

It's your chance to decide who will face off in the 2018 Midterm elections this November. You will need a valid ID to do so.

And before the polls open Tuesday June 12, voters should know you do not have to be affiliated with a particular party to vote in the primaries.

Though Menendez skated on those charges after a November mistrial and a January decision by the Department of Justice to drop all charges, his GOP opponent in the November general election, Bob Hugin, is following a campaign strategy to try him in the court of public opinion.

"An analysis today of the Governor's Congressional redistricting map provided to the PA Supreme Court shows that [Democrat] Governor Wolf designed a blatantly partisan map that fails to meet the criteria established by the Court, according to Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25) and House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-28)", Pennsylvania's Republican state legislative leaders said of the new map when it was released in February.

This office is now held by Scott Taylor of Virginia Beach. Stewart is the chairman of the Prince William County board of supervisors and is a conservative who has backing from former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.

She also appeared with the president in February 2017 at a bill-signing ceremony for her legislation to promote women in science and math fields, and was part of a high-profile immigration meeting this year where she told Mr. Trump not to shut down the government over the issue. The front-runner is Elaine Luria, a Navy veteran and businesswoman who's been endorsed by the party. Luria owns Mermaid Factory in Norfolk and served in the Navy for 20 years.

De Niro apologises to Canada for Trump's 'idiotic behaviour'
The 74-year-old actor introduced a performance by Bruce Springsteen , and took the opportunity to denounce Trump in NSFW language. "You wonder why all these shows continue to get lower and lower ratings ", Spicer said to Charles Payne on " Varney & Co ".

"If you were to make the list of the top races that are most likely to flip, these races are in the top five, and maybe the top two", said Kyle Kondik, managing editor of the nonpartisan Sabato's Crystal Ball at the University of Virginia's Center for Politics.

This office is now held by Donald McEachin.

Finally, in Virginia's 4th Congressional District, incumbent Donald McEachin is running unopposed in the Democratic primary. Hill's campaign for the Republican nomination then was cut short by a vote by acclamation for consultant and lobbyist Ed Gillespie, who narrowly lost to Warner in that election. Ryan McAdams is a minister in Williamsburg.

The six-way primary in Northern Virginia's 10th District - a suburban swing district represented by Rep. Barbara Comstock (R) - is the marquee race on the Democratic ballot, followed by a hot contest outside Richmond for the Democratic nomination to challenge Rep. Dave Brat (R). Wittman is running for reelection and is on the republican ballot for this primary.

Kaine is Hillary Clinton's former running mate and a former governor seeking a second term in the Senate.

Her affluent district, stretching from the Washington suburbs to West Virginia, is exactly the type of district that Democrats say they will win this year.

On Sunday, Giunchigliani's campaign released a 1-minute robocall featuring the former Democratic presidential nominee. But the three GOP hopefuls say they have a path to victory despite the tough political atmosphere.
