To do on the service plan: Dems have what it takes to win – I’ll Tell you What: Wild, Wild west – Newsom got what he wanted, what now? – Disappointing de Leon gets another crack at the Feinstein – district, district of

After the biggest primary day in 2018 and so far, we can report to you what has changed in the landscape for the midterm elections: Absolutely nothing.

On Tuesday, it was a race Democrats ‘” biggest test so far with 14 competitive house, two competitive Senate race and two competitive gubernatorial race, all on the vote. The imperative this week, as it is every week for the Democrats, is in the selection of the right candidate, the Republicans will keep for defense.

On Tuesday was more complicated, for the blue Team, because California had found the crazy election laws, under which the party locked themselves in three of the seven districts in which Republican-held seats are in danger. This is not going to happen.

There is also the danger for Democrats, the former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa would be in the November runoff, the first place finisher Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, which would no doubt turn ugly. That didn’t happen, either.

California Democrats were also concerned about the fact that sen Dianne Feinstein , could be in trouble this fall because of a challenge from former Senate majority Leader Kevin de León. But you beat him by nearly 1.3 million votes, with not nearly enough other votes for democratic candidates, credible status ” in your drain.

In California and other States on Tuesday, the challenge for the Democrats was to avoid the temptation, have your voters recently died in Nebraska and Kentucky in the last primaries. The fringe felt empowered after a couple of wins and looking for more. And that’s not going to happen.

National Democrats might quibble about a few picks in the 13 races in which you try to turn the seats from red to blue, but overall they got the quality of the candidates in your district. It is, for example, hear much about Mikie Sherrill, moderate Navy veteran and a former Federal Prosecutor who is now stressed, fold the seat for New Jersey’s 11th District, vacated by Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen.

Now, the Democrats should be a little worried about the turnout on Tuesday. Admittedly, she had not much in the way of competitive contests across the country, but they could only the participation of a slight increase in choice compared to 2014. This is not surfing much of a wave.

But a survey shows today by Quinnipiac University, the democratic advantage in the generic ballot remains nationwide to be stable at approximately 6 points, you have to believe a lot of reason that the house is easy to reach.

We are about halfway through the primary calendar. So far, Democrats, shows the kind of discipline in picking candidates should be nervous about the Republicans. It is to say, a battle for control of the house, nothing about the giant fight in front of individual seats in the Senate. But Democrats are mostly to do what you need to do in order to keep the edge.

You will find below the race notes on the competitive house races had primaries on Tuesday, so that you can get to know the players in this rough-and-tumble game.
