Seven states held primary elections Tuesday, including the nation's largest state, California. Here are some of the results.
California's Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom cruised to an easy primary victory.
Barely a year after surviving a recall attempt, Newsom is considered a heavy favorite in November.
Meanwhile in South Dakota, Republican Gov. Kristi Noem turned back a challenge from a former legislative leader who accused her of using her office to mount a 2024 presidential bid.
In San Francisco, voters recalled their District Attorney, who had put into place sweeping reforms. His policies included a ban on cash bail, stopping the prosecution of minors as adults, and a focus on reducing the jail population. Critics say the DA did not prosecute aggressively, and that his policies put public safety at risk.
And former President Donald Trump's one-time Interior Secretary still doesn't know whether he won his congressional race in Montana. About a thousand votes separate Ryan Zinke from his main opponent, and the last county to report is hand-counting results and hopes to tally results by Friday.
The former president endorsed Zinke, who resigned as Interior Secretary after accusations of misconduct.
Furthermore, a former TV meteorologist stormed to the Republican nomination for Governor in New Mexico.
Mark Ronchetti will challenge democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
Analysts will watch the contest as a barometer of whether the GOP can attract Hispanic support in the southwest and perhaps return New Mexico to its role as a presidential swing state.
