Nevada, North Dakota, Maine and Virginia also chose candidates for the midterm election on November 6, when Democrats hope to capture a majority of the U.S. Congress. One is Sen Heidi Heitkamp's seat in North Dakota. In between, he served two terms as the state's governor.
Four decades in S.C. politics, 16 months in the governor's office and an endorsement from the president were not enough for Gov. Henry McMaster to avoid a runoff in the Republican governor's race primary. If he fails to top 50%, it would catapult him into a one-on-one runoff. Democrats Joe Cunningham and Toby Smith are also battling for their party's nomination. "Primary voters in the Republican Party have devolved into a Trumpist cult". Clark County Commissioners Steve Sisolak and Clark County Commissioner Christina Giunchigliani are the front-runners among Democrats.
