Results for TEN State Primaries / Two Runoffs


Checklist –

1.  Vote – DONE

2.  Remove Incumbents – DONE ???

Primaries yesterday ( it is 3:40 AM June 9 as I type this) are California, Iowa, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Virginia. In addition there are runoffs from the earlier primaries in Arkansas and Georgia for the Special Election for House District 9.

The possibilities going into these primaries were discussed previously.  Let’s see how we did.  At the time I am writing this, I have tried to get as many completed races as possible, but I cannot guarantee the vote totals I give you here are 100% accurate.  I have endeavored to give you the most accurate totals possible.

Arkansas – With 5 precincts of 2388 yet to report, U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln – 133,897 (52%) has been successful in her runoff against Lt. Governor Bill Halter – 123,490 (48%).

US CONGRESS

District 1 – With 682 of 687 precincts reporting

Chad Causey (D) – 38,754 (51%) / Tim Wooldridge (D) – 36,868 (49%)

District 2 – Joyce Elliott (D) – 36,983 (54%) / Robbie Wills (D) – 31,822 (46%)

District 3 – Steve Womack (R) – 18,290 (52%) / Cecile Bledsoe (R) – 17,048 (48%)

Georgia – CD9 –It looks as though you have a Congressman, Georgia CD9.   The Georgia Secretary of State website shows the vote totals to be:

Tom Graves (R) – 22,500 – 56.5%

Lee Hawkins (R) – 17,330 – 43.5%

Iowa – U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-incumbent) will face the challenge of Democratic primary winner Roxanne Barton Conlin and a Libertarian in November.  The Democratic Primary vote count with 97% of the precincts reporting:

Roxanne Conlin – 51,417 (78%)

Bob Krause – 8,491 (13%)

Thomas Fiegen – 6,280 (9%)

Maine – I have had a difficult time locating information on your election results.  Here is what I was able to find.

GOVERNOR:

The Democratic Primary winner, State Senator Elizabeth Mitchell, will face the Republican Primary winner, Paul LePage who is more Libertarian than Republican, and three Independent candidates in November.  The best I could do for a vote count is this:

DEMOCRATIC

Elizabeth Mitchell – 21,699 (35.2%)

Steven Rowe – 14,602 (23.7%)

Rosa Scarcelli – 13,025 (21.2%)

Patrick McGowan – 12,250 (19.9%)

REPUBLICAN

Paul LePage – 20,393 (37.7%)

Les Otten – 9,302 (17.2%)

Peter Mills – 7,465 (13.8%)

Steve Abbott – 7,172 (13.2%)

Bill Beardsley – 5,404 (10%)

Bruce Poliquin – 2,644 (5%)

Matt Jacobson – 1,759 (3%)

What this tells me is that you like your RINO candidates who are not real Conservatives a great deal.  I am sorry, but I call it as I see it.

Montana – I could not find the vote count on the website for the Montana Secretary of State.  If you know where they are posted, please let me know so that I can add them here for people who would like to see the votes.  In the meantime, this was the best I could do for you.

U.S. CONGRESS At-Large:

The Republican incumbent, Denny Rehberg, has defeated his two Primary opponents, Mark French and A.J. Otjen, to face the Democratic victor in the Primary, Dennis McDonald and a Libertarian in November.  The Democratic challengers to Mr. McDonald were Tyler Gernant, Melinda Gopher, and Sam Rankin.

Nevada – U.S. Senator Harry Reid will get his wish to run against Sharron Angle in November.

Harry Reid (D) – 87,374 (75.32)  **Interesting side note – in the Democratic Primary Nevada voters had a choice.  12,335 or 10.63% chose “NONE OF THESE CANDIDATES.”

Sharron Angle (R) – 70,422 (40.09%)  ** 3,090 or 1.76% chose “NONE OF THESE CANDIDATES.”

GOVERNOR:

Republican incumbent Governor Jim Gibbons (47,616 – 27.20%) lost in the Primary to Brian Sandoval (97,201 – 55.53%)

The Democratic Primary was won by Rory Reid (yes, Senator Reid’s son – Nevada Dems are crazy) 80,164 – 70.07%

U.S. CONGRESS

District 1 – Democratic incumbent Shelley Berkley – unopposed in the Primary

Republican Kenneth Wegner – 7,314 (26.75%)

District 2 –

Democrats – Ken McKenna (18,263 – 44.51%) apparently loses to nancy Price (18,612 – 45.36%) – (Close vote)

Republican – Incumbent Dean Heller (72,727 – 83.70%) handily defeats Patrick Colletti (14,161 – 16.3%)

District 3 – Incumbent Democrat Dina Titus ( 32,119 – 80.37%) / John Beard (7,846 – 19.63%)

Republican Joe Heck (36,898 – 68.80%) / Steven Nohrden (8,853 – 16.51%) / Ed Bridges (6,066 – 11.31%) / Bran Leutwyler (1,812 – 3.38%)

New Jersey – I have not as yet been able to find statewide vote counts for these candidates.  I will provide those as I can find them.

US CONGRESS

District 1:  The Democratic incumbent Rob Andrews has defeated his Democratic challenger John Caramanna and will face Republican Dale Mark Glading in November in addition to an Independent and a Libertarian.

District 2:  Republican incumbent Frank LoBiondo has won the primary and will face Democratic challenger Gary Stein and a Constitution Party candidate in the mid-term in November.

District 3:  Congressman John Adler, Democratic incumbent, will face Republican primary winner Jon Runyan and a Libertarian in the November election.

District 4:  Democrat Howard Kleinhendler will face the incumbent Republican Christopher Smith and a Libertarian candidate on November 2.

District 5:  Tod Theise, the Democratic Primary winner will face Republican incumbent Scott Garrett in November.

District 6:  I have not been able to confirm the winner in the Republican Primary.  There is no mention of a runoff, but I will assume there are provisions in your state law for this possibility.  The Democratic incumbent Frank Pallone, Jr. will face either Republican Diane Gooch or Republican Anna Little.

District 7:  Republican incumbent Leonard Lance has won renomination and will face Democrat Ed Potosnak, III in the November election.

District 8:  Democratic incumbent Bill Pascrell, Jr. will face Republican Roland Straten and a Libertarian in November.

District 9:  The Republican winner of the primary, Michael Agosta, will face Congressman Steve Rothman, the Democratic incumbent, in November.

District 10:  This district was uncontested in the primary and November’s election will see the Democratic incumbent, Donald Payne face off against Republican Michael J. Alonso.

District 11:  The Republican incumbent, Rodney Frelinghuysen, has won the right to face Douglas Herbert, his Democratic challenger in November.

District 12:  Incumbent Rush Holt (D) will face Scott Sipprelle (R).

District 13:  By defeating his primary opponent, Democratic incumbent Albio Sires will face the Republican challenger, Henriette Dwyer, in November

North Dakota – U.S. CONGRESS At-Large will pit the Democratic incumbent Earl Pomeroy against the Republican Primary winner, Rick Berg.  Mr. Berg garnered 53,106 votes (89%) while his Republican challenger J.D. Donaghe received 6,286 (10%).

South Carolina – Incumbent Republican Senator Jim DeMint has won his primary against challenger Susan McDonald Gaddy and will face the Democratic primary winner, Alvin Greene and a Green Party candidate in November’s US Senate election.

For Governor, State Senator Vincent Sheheen (D) will face the Republican winner to be decided in a June 22 runoff between Congressman Gresham Barrett and State Representative Nikki Haley.  Also participating in the November election will be a Green Party; United Citizens Party candidate.

US CONGRESS

District 1 will see Democrat Ben Frasier, Jr. and the winner of the June 22 Republican runoff between State Representative Tim Scott and Charleston Councilor Paul Thurmond and four other smaller party candidates in November.

District 2 will have a November contest between Democrat Rob Miller and the Republican incumbent Congressman Joe Wilson as well as two smaller party candidates.

District 3 gave the nod to Jane Ballard Dyer, Democratic;Working Families Party nominee to face either Richard James Cash or State Representative Jeff Duncan who will meet in a June 22 runoff for the Republican nomination.  Two smaller party candidates will also be on the November ballot.

District 4 provides an interesting development.  Republican incumbent Bob Inglis with 27% of the vote will have to go to a runoff on June 22 with Republican Trey Gowdy who received 40% of the vote for the right to face Democrat Paul Henry Corden and several smaller party candidates in November.

District 5 was not contested in the primary.  The Democratic incumbent John McKee Spratt, Jr. will face Republican State Senator Mick Mulvaney in the November election.

District 6 gives the Democratic incumbent Jim Clyburn the right to face the June 22 runoff winner between Nancy Harrelson (R) and Jim Pratt (R).
