Primary Night Briefs (Updated)   Leave a comment

While the eyes of the nation remain focused on the Bluegrass State tonight, there were a few other races of note across the country as voters went to the polls in Georgia, Pennsylvania and a few other states:

  • In the Peach State, Republican voters look set to face two more months of primary campaigning as a runoff appears on the horizon between outgoing Rep. Jack Kingston and Georgia businessman David Perdue; at present, Perdue leads 30-28 over Kingston with about 64% of the vote so far
  • In the Keystone State, Democratic voters nominated businessman and progressive-supported candidate Tom Wolf over Third Way-supported Rep. Allyson Schwartz with 58% of the vote vs. 18% for Schwartz
  • In Pennsylvania’s 13th District, former Rep. Marjorie Margolies, who once served in Congress back in the early 90’s, lost her nomination fight to PA State Rep. Brendan Boyle 40-27.
  • Out in Oregon, pediatric neurosurgeon Monica Webhy, who’d been subjected to some very negative campaign ads in the last week of the campaign, won the GOP nomination to face incumbent Sen. Jeff Merkley in November. Webhy beat several challengers, garnering 51% of the primary vote
