Despite being an eclectic mix, all the Democrats in the race point to President Donald Trump - his conduct in and out of office as much as his administration's policies - as a key factor in their decisions to run for Congress.

Today is primary election day in Virginia (polls are open from 6 am to 7 pm; vote at your regular polling location).

The objective is to ensure that officials are elected with an outright majority when there are three or more candidates, and to elevate those with the widest appeal.

South Carolina, Nevada, North Dakota and ME also will choose candidates for the November 6 races that could help determine control of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, including two of the most competitive Senate races.

Heller faced a potentially strong primary challenger in Danny Tarkanian, a businessman who has run unsuccessfully for the House and Senate in Nevada before.

As recently as the 1990s, Democrats and Republicans were fairly even divided in Nevada, a state that had supported Republican presidents including Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and his son, George W. Bush.

The girl reportedly hit her dad in the face when they took the Xbox One away, which they had bought for her back in January. Later on, the girl became withdrawn and disinterested in prior hobbies, like going to the gym and taking ballet classes.

Democrats' hopes for picking up a seat are highest in the 10th District, which stretches from the wealthy northern Virginia suburbs of McLean inside the Capital Beltway was through Loudoun County and out to Winchester. They are nonbinding and are used by political parties to determine voter interest and support for an issue. In the swing state of Nevada, Democratic Representative Jacky Rosen is expected to sail to the nomination to face vulnerable Republican Senator Dean Heller. Cramer, 57, is the GOP's top choice, after he changed his mind this spring and said he would run for Senate rather than stay in the House.

Polling is also close in matchups for two other top statewide offices: attorney general and secretary of state. That comes out to nearly 1.5 percent of total registered voters in the city. VOTE Katie!,' he wrote.

Infectious disease scientist Julia Biggins pointed to her unique experience in her campaign video. Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats after the midterm elections to take control of the U.S. House. Hillary Clinton won Nevada by 2 points in 2016, but Republicans stand a good chance of replacing term-limited Gov. Brian Sandoval with another of their own.

Sanford faces a tough primary challenge in Tuesday's contest and a big part of the reason why is that he's been a staunch critic of the president's for the past three years. Two Republicans are vying for the nomination: Ryan McAdams and Shion Fenty.

This office is now held by Scott Taylor of Virginia Beach. Also running is Nick Freitas, a U.S. Army veteran who represents 30th District in the House of Delegates. A year ago, five women and one man entered the Democratic primary to face Republican incumbent Congressman Dave Brat, but the list has since been whittled down.

Sanford, a longtime politician who has served both in Congress and as governor of SC for parts of the past three decades, is one of the few Republican members of congress who openly criticizes Trump. There are primaries Tuesday night in three of those seats. If you take one, be sure tag FOX 5 by using #Fox5Vote.
