Democrats test anti-Trump messages in Virginia House race

One seat they're targeting is in Nevada. Eastern in North Dakota, and at 10 p.m.in Nevada.

There's also a Republican primary Tuesday in the 10th District.

Here are results from the already-held primaries in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and a brief run-down of what to watch across the country Tuesday night.

If Fenty were to win the primary, reflected Condit, "I think she brings something very different to the Republican Party than the state of Virginia Republicans are accustomed to". Scott Hammond and former reporter Michelle Mortensen.

Baffert was a little nervous after the first quarter-mile when Justify went out fast. "It was just a great day, went smooth". Less than a month later, Justify became the first Kentucky Derby victor to go unraced as a 2-year-old since Apollo in 1882.

Similarly, incumbent Rep. Dave Brat, a prominent member of the House Freedom Caucus, will have to face one of two Democrats - either Abigail Spanberger and Dan Ward - in the 7th congressional district outside Richmond.

Nevada also has an interesting governor's race, with six Democrats and seven Republicans vying to run for a position that's been controlled by the GOP for almost 20 years. On the Democratic side, six candidates - four of whom are women - are vying to be on the ballot in November, including state Senator Jennifer Wexton, who was endorsed by the Washington Post. Clark County Commissioners Steve Sisolak and Clark County Commissioner Christina Giunchigliani are the front-runners among Democrats. Geoffrey Skelley of Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball writes, "Comstock is a prodigious fundraiser and has a history of outpacing the partisan lean of districts she has represented, but the district's Democratic shifts in 2016 and 2017 show why she is one of the Democrats' foremost targets in 2018". Jackson ran for Virginian's lieutenant governor in 2013 and won the Republican primary before losing in the general election to Democrat Ralph Northam.

President Trump urged South Carolina Republicans to vote U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford out of office Tuesday, tweeting that the three-term congressman was "better off in Argentina" - a reference to a sex scandal that forced Sanford to resign as governor.

This office is now held by Scott Taylor of Virginia Beach.

Trump's vow to end military drills with South Korea stuns a region
Hannity is in Singapore , where Trump is about to sit down for his historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un . It was shocking, he said, because these exercises are fundamental to our military relationship with South Korea.

The president has come out strongly against Rep Mark Sanford (R-SC) in his primary battle against Katie Arrington in South Carolina's 1st District. But Hillary Clinton carried the district easily in the 2016 presidential race, so many analysts believe an energized Democratic base could carry the day in November. Other candidates include military veteran Dan Helmer, former congressional and Obama administration staffer Lindsey Davis Stover, former federal prosecutor Paul Pelletier and scientist Julia Biggins.

This week's principal focus is on Virginia, a state trending increasingly blue where Republicans hold a number of vulnerable House seats.

"I have the lived experience to be competitive in every inch of this district". Control of the Senate, now held 51-49 by Republicans, could turn on how they fare in the congressional election less than five months away.

In North Dakota and Nevada, voters will set the stage for two of the most competitive U.S. Senate races in November, when Democrats must pick up two seats to capture a Senate majority.

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
