科罗拉多州, 纽约, Illinois among states voting Tuesday
Tuesday will see another wave of primary showdowns across the country as US voters turn out to make crucial decisions ahead of November’s general elections.
This week’s challenges include the numerous battles taking place in 纽约, where redistricting as well as the resignation of Gov Andrew Cuomo have brewed up a particularly interesting election season. 政府 Kathy Hochul is running for her first full term should she survive her primary election tomorrow, 尽管 共和党人 are set to conclude their own multi-candidate gubernatorial primary that is likely to see the defeat of Andrew Giuliani, son of ex-Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. The state’s congressional and state legislature primaries are set to be held in August.
Meanwhile in 科罗拉多州 代表 劳伦·博伯特 is set to be the latest far-right Trump acolyte to face her own primary challenge; she’s facing a challenge from Don Coram of the Colorado General Assembly and could potentially be in danger like Donald Trump’s hand-picked candidates in Georgia due to the interference of Democrats using the state’s open primary system to back her opponent. That tactic previously led to the reelection survival of Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia secretary of state who resisted Mr Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 选举.
Like her fellow freshman member of Congress Madison Cawthorn, Ms Boebert is also facing a coordinated effort to dig into her past by David Wheeler, the head of the “Fire Boebert” PAC who previously led a drip-drip campaign of damaging revelations that contributed to Mr Cawthorn’s primary defeat in North Carolina.
Boebert to face primary challenger
Rep Lauren Boebert, one of the House’s most controversial members, is set to face Don Coram in Tuesday’s GOP primary for the 3rd congressional district of Colorado.
She’s favoured to win, but faces a competitive challenger in Don Coram, a member of the state legislature, due in no small part to her own controversial remarks and actions. Two major PACs, the Fire Boebert PAC and the Better Than Boebert PAC, are backing her opponent.
Seven states are set to host primary elections Tuesday as the nation comes to terms with last week’s stunning Supreme Court ruling eliminating the constitutional right to an abortion
