U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, who now represents the old 1st District that includes portions of the new 5th District, will not seek re-election.

Statewide, the Republicans will choose a standard-bearer for their November match-up with Democratic incumbent Governor Kate Brown.

Opposition to President Trump, a redrawn congressional map and a string of Republican retirements in the state have opened the door for Democrats to pick up as many as half a dozen seats.

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

Of the city's more than 1 million registered voters, more than 796,000 are registered Democrats, while GOP registration remains at almost 117,000; those with neither Democrat or Republican registration number at almost 118,000.

Democrats kept a close eye on Tuesday's primaries in Pennsylvania, a pivotal state as the party seeks to make gains and possibly take control of the House in November's midterm elections. If she does, she will face the GOP primary victor from among state Rep. Knute Buehler, former Navy pilot Greg Wooldridge and entrepreneur Sam Carpenter.

Should the Kings stay put at No. 7, it would mark the 7th time in the lottery era where they have ended up with that selection. Joking aside, the Los Angeles Clippers have a pretty minimal chance of getting a top-three pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

With Lisa Boeving-Learned of Jackson Center the only Democratic candidate on the ballot, the two will face off in November. The front-runners include two Bend residents - state Rep. Knute Buehler and businessman Sam Carpenter - as well as Greg Wooldridge of Portland The victor likely would face incumbent Democrat Kate Brown, who faces no substantial opposition in her primary. Their choices for governor are Scott R. Wagner of York County, Paul Mango and Laura Ellsworth, both of Allegheny County.

A clutch of both Democrats and Republicans are challenging one another in the lieutenant governor primary.

Sanders endorsed Braddock, Pa., Mayor John Fetterman, who is running on universal health care and marijuana legalization, over Lt. Gov. Mike Stack (D).

For the Republicans, Kathy Coder, a businesswoman from Allegheny County, Diana Irey Vaughan, a county commissioner from Washington County, Jeff Bartos, a businessman from Montgomery County, and Peg Luksik, an education advocate from Cambria County, are seeking the lieutenant governor nomination.

Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Brendan Boyle is seeking re-election. He has one primary challenger.

Nebraska's Republican senator and governor are favored to keep their seats in November.

National Democrats are parachuting into the races because of concern over the outcome of California's so-called jungle primaries, set for June 5.

Democrat primary candidates are Lawrence Arata III, Margo Lomax Davidson, Thaddeus Kirkland, Richard Lazer, Ashley Lunkenheimer, Lindy Li, Mary Gay Scanlon, Molly Marie Sheehan, Gregory Vitali, and Theresa Wright. Nick Fish is running for re-election and has a number of challengers.

Trump on Tuesday urged voters to support incumbent Sen. If the home rule referendum passes, the borough will create a home rule study commission that could recommend a charter that would replace the state borough code. And a handful of communities have ballot questions for their voters to decide, as in the Chartiers Valley School District, which is deciding on whether to hike taxes to finance enhanced school security.

There are 2 seats on the Portland City Council on the ballot.
