Primary Recap

The results are in from Tuesday's 2018 midterm primary elections and runoff races.

Voters in New York, Maryland, Utah, Oklahoma, and Colorado turned out to the polls on Tuesday for primary elections, while people in South Carolina and Mississippi made their picks in runoff races. In Utah, former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney won his Republican senate primary and will face Democrat Jenny Wilson for retiring Republican Senator Orrin Hatch’s seat. In South Carolina’s primary runoff race for governor, current Governor Henry McMaster held strong. McMaster is seeking his first full term and may have gotten a boost in voters thanks to rally with President Trump Monday. The biggest surprise came out of the New York’s Democratic House race, with 28-year-old newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeating ten-term incumbent, Representative Joe Crowley. Ocasio-Cortez has never been elected to office.
