But spending from independent expenditure groups, who can spend as much money as they like so long as they don't directly coordinate with political campaigns, have played a significant role this year.

Polls are open in California from 10 a.m.to 11 p.m.

New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez is facing a primary challenge, as well.

As widely expected, Denham, first elected to the House in 2010, coasted to top position with 38.3 percent of Tuesday's vote, according to incomplete returns. "He will make a BIG difference!"

The state's primary system offered potential nightmare scenarios for both parties.

Because of California's unusual primary system, Trump's party faces the embarrassing prospect of not qualifying any candidate for the governor's race or the U.S. Senate. The most likely way the other four candidates may be able to stop him is to make sure no one wins in Tuesday's primary election, unless another candidate has found a substantial increase in popularity over the past two weeks.

"I don't think the Democrats can take the House without New Jersey", said Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University.

Republican businessman John Cox and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa are vying for the opportunity to challenge front-runner Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom in the November general election.

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.

"He was already mayor of Los Angeles and I saw him do a lot for the Hispanic community", she said after casting her ballot.

Jeanne Watkins of Clovis said Nunes has her support.

The three-term congresswoman defeated state Sen. The top two vote-getters advance to November, regardless of party affiliation.

While Republicans would likely have a hard time winning either the governorship or a Senate seat this fall, party leaders are anxious all-Democrat ballots would depress GOP turnout, hurting more competitive down-ballot races.


Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein won renomination, although it was unclear whether she'll face a Republican or a Democrat in November.

Last year, California Democrats (and one Republican) passed a transportation funding bill that raised the state's gas tax for the first time since 1994. Former state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon argues Feinstein isn't doing enough to oppose the Trump administration.

Navy veteran and former federal prosecutor Mikie Sherrill claimed the Democratic nomination in a district left open by the retirement of Republican Rodney Frelinghuysen. Democrats have almost 900,000 more registered voters than Republicans in the state.

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. Many Democrats believe that will benefit the party as a whole-and help capture GOP-held congressional seats key to the Dems taking control of the House-by discouraging Republican turnout in November. "Keep our country out of the hands of High Tax, High Crime Nancy Pelosi".

California's outcomes probably won't be decided Tuesday because the state allows mail-in ballots to be postmarked through primary day.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham is competing against state Sen.

Republican challenger Bob Hugin (HYOO'-gihn) has been pummeling Menendez over the allegations he accepted gifts in exchange for helping a friend with personal and business matters.

Rosendale has GOP establishment support, but that may not be a plus for Montana Republican voters. Democratic party leaders have backed Tom Malinowski, who has raised considerably more than his opponents.

Democrats have aimed their most aggressive attacks at Rosendale, seizing on his background in Maryland and questions about his experience as a rancher.

Siddiqui told Martha MacCallum that several Democratic delegates also told him he was the most qualified candidate to face Rohrabacher but that "the name Omar Siddiqui will not work in Orange County". She made the decision after the release of a 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape in which Trump bragged about grabbing women's genitals.

Mississippi, Alabama, Iowa, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, and South Dakota all vote today.

Five candidates are looking to replace Chiang as treasurer, including Democrat Vivek Viswanathan, who embarked on a 600-plus-mile campaign run - literally - across the state.
