  • Primary election day preparation

Candidates for the state House of Representatives across the region, including four incumbents, are unopposed for nomination in the primary election today, but following today's vote, they will be back in the fall in their bid for election to a two-year term.

Incumbent U.S. Rep. Dwight Evans will seek another term in office, but will compete against Kevin Johnson in the Democratic primary.

Donahue said he also hasn't seen much of any of the candidates in the Crawford County area this primary season.

Three other states are also voting - Idaho, Nebraska and Oregon.

For races related to Pennsylvania's General Assembly, there are no contests in the primary for either Democrats or Republicans. That's more than any time since 1984, when Pennsylvania had 23 seats in the House.

Polls are open from 7 a.m.to 8 p.m.

OR is a vote-by-mail state, where ballots must be received by 11 p.m. ET. But the results will clearly affect the ideological makeup of the party's November field, given the candidates' differences.

President Donald Trump became the first Republican presidential nominee to carry Pennsylvania since 1988.

There are no punch cards or hanging chads, but it might be the next best thing. In the 5th District, the Democratic candidates are Kenneth Stepp and Scott Sykes. The seat now belongs to Rep. Charlie Dent, who like Costello is retiring.

PM and Donald Trump discuss impact of US sanctions on Iran
Most analysts believe that at least some nations will ignore the new American sanctions and continue buying Iranian crude . The leaders of Britain, France and Germany tried but failed to persuade Trump to stick with the deal.

Incumbent Sen. Robert Casey Jr. will face no challenger in the Democratic primary. He's an immigration hardliner who opposes abortion in most cases, and CNN reported he's deleted tweets slamming progressive groups and praising President Trump. She's picked up all the national endorsements, from Planned Parenthood to People for Bernie Sanders.

Whichever Democrat wins will have to work to get the party fully behind them to face the GOP nominee - either Lehigh County Commission Chair Marty Nothstein, a former Olympic gold medalist in cycling, or former Lehigh County Commissioner Dean Browning. Former GOP Rep. Pat Meehan - who resigned last month amid a sexual harassment scandal - would have had to run in solidly Democratic turf under the new lines.

The result: 40.9 percent of Democrats turned out, only 26.8 percent of Republicans. The 18th District itself now includes Pittsburgh, home base of incumbent Democrat Mike Doyle. Guy Reschenthaler in the primary.

Or, if you're feeling a twinge of nostalgia for the old polling place days before OR made all elections vote-by-mail, you can cast your ballot in person in the Benton County Election Office, located in the basement of the county courthouse at 120 NW Fourth St.in downtown Corvallis. Murphy's directed funds from his old campaign account to a group backing Reschenthaler, saying he would be the stronger general election candidate.

In the 4th District, Democrats Seth Hall, Christina Lord and Patti Piatt are running for a chance to challenge U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie. However, GOP hopes to take out Democratic Sen. Bob Casey is defending his seat.

Nebraska's Second, including Omaha.

Ashford, a former Republican, served one term in Congress as a Democrat before Republican Don Bacon beat him for re-election in 2016. Gabby Giffords's gun control group Americans for Responsible Solutions.

Paulette Jordan, a 38-year-old two-term Idaho state legislator and a member of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, represents the young, fresh progressive face in the race.

In Idaho, Republican Governor Butch Otter is retiring, and the GOP primary is a classic three-way Establishment/ideologue/"outsider" affair. All three have tried to assail the conservative credentials of their opponents, and in the close race, any of the trio could win the nomination.
