What you need to know about Tuesday’s Nebraska primary election

With about 91 percent of the precincts reporting in Tuesday's primary election in the 9th Congressional District on the Republican ticket, The Associated Press called Dan Meuser the victor of the race at 10:06 p.m.

OR is an all vote-by-mail state, but voters have until 8 p.m. local time to drop off ballots at official drop box sites.

The new map changed what is now Pennsylvania's fifth congressional district from a swing district to one that Hillary Clinton would have won by 28 points, giving the victor of Tuesday's primary an easy road to victory in November.

Republican Rick Saccone - who lost a high-profile special election earlier this year in the old 18th District to Democrat Conor Lamb - lost again on Tuesday. The president has rallied behind one of his earliest supporters, Representative Lou Barletta, who is seeking to win the right to take on Democratic Senator Bob Casey in November. Instead, he focused his attacks on the candidate he hopes to unseat in the fall, two-term Democratic Sen. Trump had recorded an automated telephone message praising Barletta that was sent to voters just before the election. Mr. Trump asked Barletta to run for Senate, and the president is expected to visit Pennsylvania to campaign for him. But Democrats are now pinning their hopes on the Rust Belt state being at the forefront of a blue revival later this year.

Pennsylvania was one of the 21 states targeted by the Russians ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Republicans control the Senate, 51-49, and defeating Casey would give Republicans one more vote favorable to Mr. Trump to help advance the president's agenda. Bob Casey in the fall. The Idaho GOP gubernatorial primary was another nasty fight, with the Republican candidates trying to establish their outsider credentials.

Barletta, who was elected in the tea party wave of 2010, has taken a hard line on immigration in the Senate.

Voters sign in to cast their ballot in the Pennsylvania primary at a polling place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S., April 26, 2016. Pat Toomey won by fewer than 2 percentage points.

Wagner's victory in Tuesday's three-way primary election caps a personal spending spree of more than $10 million that helped make him the front-runner and the GOP's endorsed candidate. Wagner defeated two first-time candidates from the Pittsburgh area, Paul Mango and Laura Ellsworth, surviving weeks of Mango's sharp-elbowed attack ads that painted Wagner as sleazy, greedy and a "deadbeat dad".

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts is touting his conservative credentials on the national stage as he prepares for a showdown with the victor of Tuesday's Democratic gubernatorial primary. He is favored to win a second term in November.

Wolf previous year ordered an investigation into the treatment of state employees by Stack and his wife and stripped Stack of state police protection. This is the first election to use Pennsylvania's new congressional maps, which were drawn by the state Supreme Court this past winter.

Three incumbents - Democrats Mike Doyle of Pittsburgh, and Brendan Boyle and Dwight Evans of Philadelphia - turned back primary challenges in heavily Democratic districts.

Scanlon will face Republican Pearl Kim, who ran unopposed in the primary, in the general election.

Scott Wallace won the nomination in another district northeast of Philadelphia that Democrats hope to turn. The redrawn map has made some districts more competitive.

Stack sought to avoid becoming the first lieutenant governors beaten in a primary election since Pennsylvania allowed lieutenant governors to run for a second term in the 1970s.

Voters in Pennsylvania will select candidates from their newly drawn Congressional District Map for the first time. That's more than any time since 1984, when Pennsylvania had 23 seats in the House.

Governor Pete Ricketts is facing a challenge from his own party for the Republican nomination. She says "that was a wasted vote" because it will be going Democratic.

In the GOP primary, Fischer defeated retired Omaha math professor Jack Heidel; writer and retired air conditioning technician Dennis Frank Macek; former finance manager Jeffrey Lynn Stein; and Lincoln businessman Todd Watson. She will face state legislator Knute Buehler, who won the Republican nomination. He now faces state Sen.

The Democrat Party has a runoff for Texas Governor between Lupe Valdez and Andrew White.

Evnen has pitched himself as a conservative who supports voter identification laws, which lawmakers have not passed.

King ran without opposition in the primary.
