Pa. primary election 2018: Don't know who to vote for in the #PA5 congressional race? Check out these in-depth interviews

Primary election day preparation

Forty percent of all voters have left the parties because we believe both the Republicans and Democrats are in bed with big-money special interests. Bob Casey is defending his seat. One Democrat has filed to run for Holy's seat, Rion Ametu. The fight for control of the Senate is being played in Republican turf, meaning Democrats face an uphill climb to win a majority. Idaho voters are set to pick their Republican gubernatorial nominee, while heavily Republican Nebraska and Democratic-leaning OR are also holding primaries Tuesday.

Barletta was a Trump supporter before the 2016 presidential nomination was settled.

It could be that the ballots cast were about evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans, which last happened in a county election in 2010, according to election returns posted on the county website.

Today, eligible voters should make the most of it. Republicans have choices for hotly contested nominating races for governor, lieutenant governor and U.S. Senate, and for many U.S. House seats under the newly un-gerrymandered districts devised by the state Supreme Court. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security offered in mid-April to do a free assessment of any city, county or state system, upon request. Philadelphia is now represented by the 2nd, 3rd and 5th districts.

Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., at a hearing on Capitol Hill on March 15, 2018. A Muhlenberg College poll taken a few weeks ago has the potential Democratic nominees (to be chosen on Tuesday) ahead of the potential Republican nominees by anywhere from 7 to 18 points.

In a post, Facebook says: "This is an issue we have been thinking about for some time". "Today, as part of our". Ireland is the first country where Facebook has implemented the rule.

Voters also may be reacting to what he said is a strong slate of candidates who will be able to run head to head against their Republican counterparts in contested races in November.

Democrats say Rothfus, a former member for the hardline Freedom Caucus is too conservative for the moderate district, and that Lamb enjoys almost universal name recognition after winning his high-profile special election. The victor will run against Democratic Governor Tom Wolf in November.

In Oregon, incumbent Democratic Gov. Kate Brown has drawn a pair of primary challengers but is expected to advance to the general election. The leading candidate is Republican state Sen.

And let's not forget the highest office in Pennsylvania.

Wolf also holds a considerable lead over Wagner in the early polling.
