Primary season ends with races in New Hampshire, Delaware and Rhode Island


WASHINGTON — The 2022 primary season ends Tuesday with a variety of contests in three small states — including a Republican showdown in New Hampshire that could have a big impact on the entire U.S. Senate.

A pro-Donald Trump denier and a more traditional Republican lawmaker are vying for the nomination to oppose Sen. Maggie Hassan, DN.H., a potentially vulnerable Democratic incumbent.

The New Hampshire race involving retired Army General Don Bolduc and State Senator Chuck Morse highlights a final primary day that also includes statewide and legislative races in Delaware and Rhode Island. This is the last round of primaries before Election Day, November 8.
