In Nueces County, only three races will be on the ballots: two in the Democratic primary and one in the Republican Primary.

The Delaware County Democrats were unable to agree on an endorsement, but Ms. Scanlon received a plurality of votes, followed by Ms. Lunkenheimer.

Democrats are hopeful that a solid wave election could help obscure any candidate flaws in a district that Hillary Clinton narrowly won and President Obama carried twice. The exhausted arguments of establishment Democrats that "we have to vote for someone who can win" don't fly because the 2nd CD and 6th CD have been gerrymandered blue.

A total of 463 candidates filed for the 125 House and Senate legislative seats up for election in November; after candidate withdrawals and challenges, there will be 442 names on the ballot this year. The victor of today's primary will face incumbent U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, who is unopposed for the Republican nomination. The Republican got a late boost from Trump, who called him a "very special guy" in the robo-call.

The June 5, 2018, Statewide Direct Primary is only weeks away, and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla is urging citizens to register to vote.
