Race called by The Associated Press.
Independents outnumber both Democrats and Republicans in N.H. and can vote in either primary. In a few days, we’ll know how many chose to vote in the G.O.P. races — the only competitive ones tonight — which will indicate the broad enthusiasm (or lack thereof) for those candidates in November.
Rockingham County, N.H., along the Massachusetts border in the southeast corner, is the state’s reddest county. Few returns are in yet, but watch to see how strongly Bolduc does there, even in Salem, Morse’s hometown.
Lydia York, a lawyer and former corporate accountant, defeated Delaware’s incumbent auditor of accounts, Kathleen K. McGuiness, in a Democratic primary. McGuiness had been convicted of misdemeanors related to hiring her daughter.
Gregg Amore, a state representative, won the Democratic primary for Rhode Island secretary of state. His Republican opponent will be Pat Cortellessa, the supervisor of a security company who volunteered for the Trump campaign in 2016.
Lt. Gov. Sabina Matos of Rhode Island, who is seeking her first full term, won the Democratic primary for lieutenant governor. Aaron Guckian, a development officer at the Rhode Island Foundation, won the Republican primary.
Rhode Island’s second congressional district will be a great general-election race. The Democratic nominee, Seth Magaziner, originally contemplated a run for governor but saw a better opportunity in Representative Jim Langevin’s old seat.
Senator Maggie Hassan bet early that abortion would be a major issue in her bid for re-election. She has hammered Republicans for what she says is an extreme position, mindful that the issue plays differently in New Hampshire than many red states.
Is there a bellwether town in N.H. to watch for how the night is going in the G.O.P. primaries? Dante Scala, a political science professor, told NHJournal he would be watching Bedford because “it’s a large Republican town where no major candidate has a ‘home field’ advantage.”
Senate candidates’ Twitter feeds and news releases suggest Democrats in close races are eager to talk about the 15-week abortion ban proposed today. Republicans, not so much — they’re focused on today’s inflation report instead.
Senator Lindsey Graham cast a newly proposed 15-week abortion ban as a “late-term” ban, but 15 weeks is early in the second trimester. This has been a common tactic: rhetorically emphasizing abortions late in pregnancy, but targeting them earlier.
Republicans had been hedging their bets on the economy, shifting their focus to crime, the border and other issues. But Tuesday’s news that inflation remains high has G.O.P. strategists back on economic struggles as the core of their fall campaigns.
