Midterm primaries in California, Iowa and New Jersey shape next Congress

Tuesday’s primaries aren’t expected to offer huge drama, but congressional races in California, Montana and New Jersey will feature politicians facing ethical hurdles or Donald Trump’s disapproval.

  • States with primaries: California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Dakota.
  • David Valadao, one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, is seeking re-election in California.
  • Ryan Zinke, Trump’s former interior secretary, is running again to represent Montana in Congress.

WASHINGTON — Voters head to the polls Tuesday in seven states to vote in back-to-back primary elections.

California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota are holding primaries for federal and local offices that will help determine whether Republicans can regain control of Congress and who occupy the principal executive and legislative seats in their states.
