President Trump sent out a tweet congratulating Lauren Boebert on her victory in Colorado’s 3rd District, although he had endorsed Scott Tipton last December. Colo. 3rd District primary results »

In OK-5, Neese has focused on Trump, with ads highlighting how she backs his policies. Bice has tried to garner support from more moderate voters (while also supporting Trump).

The G.O.P. primary in Oklahoma’s 5th District will be going to a runoff on Aug. 25 between Terry Neese and Stephanie Bice. The winner takes on freshman Democrat Kendra Horn. Okla. 5th District primary results »

Shortly after Scott Tipton, a five-term G.O.P. House member, conceded, The A.P. called the race for Lauren Boebert, a gun rights activist who challenged pandemic restrictions. Colo. 3rd District primary results »

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Scott Tipton conceded to Lauren Boebert in Colorado. “3rd District Republicans have decided who they want to run against the Democrats this November,” he said in a statement.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

The expansion of Medicaid in Oklahoma is currently hanging on a one-point margin with 95% reporting. Oklahoma would be the fifth state to expand Medicaid with a ballot initiative. Oklahoma results »

Now that we’re talking about Jon Huntsman Jr., I get to share my favorite Huntsman fact: His father, Jon Huntsman Sr., helped invent the plastic box that Big Macs used to be served in, the “clamshell.”

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

We will see if Huntsman redeemed himself by becoming ambassador to Russia for President Trump. (Yes. Russia.) Results are expected after midnight Eastern time.

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

Huntsman is something of a fixture in Utah but did not exactly help himself when he left the job of governor to become ambassador to China. For Barack Obama. Who is a Democrat.

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

Another thing we are watching tonight: Is Utah done with Jon Huntsman Jr. or can he become governor again? He’s trying.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

As our colleague Julie Davis notes, if Lauren Boebert holds on to win, it will be the third time in three weeks that a candidate endorsed by Trump has lost a primary. Colo. 3rd District primary results »

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

I do wonder if McGrath would have still won in Kentucky had it largely been an in-person vote. Name ID from millions in advertising sure helped on those early mail-in ballots. Kentucky Senate primary results »

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

Voters wanting candidates who they think are going to win? Reminds me of another big race.… Hmmm. Oh yeah. The Democratic presidential primary.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

As we’ve seen before, Democratic voters increasingly support the kinds of progressive policies that Romanoff and Booker ran on, but the candidate seen as more “electable” often wins. Read more »

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

Hickenlooper and McGrath were both party-backed candidates who faced challenges from the left; still, both of them won. Voters might have seen them as stronger in November.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

Lauren Boebert, who has supported the false QAnon conspiracy theory, now has a big lead in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. In 2016, Trump won the district by 12 points. Colo. 3rd District primary results »

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

Lauren Boebert, currently leading in CO-3, temporarily lost her restaurant’s food service license recently when she reopened it in defiance of a public health order.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

Though his margin seems solid, Hickenlooper was the second party-backed candidate to face a stiff primary challenge in the last week, after Amy McGrath edged out a win in Kentucky.

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

That said, Republicans did not want this outcome. To watch in the coming days: whether the national party walks away from Colorado and puts its resources into other states.

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

Hickenlooper was the Democrat the party wanted to run against Gardner. But his problems in this primary — the missteps, the ethics investigation — gave the G.O.P. a glimmer of hope.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

Republicans are committed to defending Gardner, and Republican groups have combined for more than $12 million in future television reservations in Colorado.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

Cory Gardner’s seat in Colorado is one of the Democrats’ top targets — they view him as a vulnerable first-term senator in a state trending increasingly blue.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

John Hickenlooper has won the Democratic Senate primary in Colorado. He’ll face Senator Cory Gardner in November, a race Democrats see as a big chance to pick up a Senate seat. Colorado Senate primary results »

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

This primary got nasty. Romanoff aired an ad that jokingly asserted Hickenlooper has been taking “so many showers lately” to wash away part of his record.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

The backing of national Democrats was a windfall for Hickenlooper; the allied super PAC, Senate Majority PAC, has spent $8.3 million on TV ads defending him from G.O.P. attack ads.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

The Senate Democrats’ campaign arm endorsed Hickenlooper last August, rankling other candidates who were already running and had announced before him, including Romanoff. Colorado Senate primary results »

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

Tonight’s counting should be relatively smooth. Colorado and Utah are two of the five states that regularly conduct their elections almost entirely by mail.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

Other primaries have been marred by chaotic expansions of mail-in voting — New York City won’t begin counting absentee ballots from last week’s elections until next week.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Voting is done in Colorado, and John Hickenlooper is currently in the lead in the Democratic Senate primary with 10% of the votes already counted. Colorado Senate primary results »

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Horn has raised over $3 million for her re-election campaign. State Senator Stephanie Bice, the biggest fund-raiser on the G.O.P. side, has collected more than $1 million. Okla. 5th District primary results »

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

In Oklahoma’s 5th District, Democrat Kendra Horn won her seat in 2018 by only one percentage point. Tonight she easily dispatched a primary challenger, Tom Guild.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

In Colorado, turnout of registered Democrats was already 75%, which would be high for a general election in most states, let alone a primary. Republicans are currently at 52%.

Nick Corasaniti June 30, 2020

Turnout in the Colorado primary was at 39% this afternoon, a number that will definitely increase. 1,370,184 ballots had been returned in the predominantly mail-in ballot state.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Lauren Boebert, the challenger in the Republican primary in Colorado’s 3rd District, owns a restaurant, Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colo., known for its open-carry gun policy.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Also in Colorado, Rep. Scott Tipton, a Republican, is facing a primary challenge from businesswoman Lauren Boebert, who has expressed support for the false QAnon conspiracy theory.

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

Hickenlooper is facing a spirited challenge in the Democratic Senate primary from Andrew Romanoff, a former speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives.

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

Colorado Democrats implored John Hickenlooper, the former governor, to run for Senate. Which he did. He has not run a great campaign. Read more »

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

The Colorado seat is held by Cory Gardner, perhaps the most vulnerable Republican in the Senate, and so it’s a key target for Democrats who want to capture the Senate.

Adam Nagourney June 30, 2020

Voting in Colorado closes at 7 p.m. Mountain time (that’s 9 for you East Coasters and 6 for me in L.A.). National Democrats have watched the Senate primary with more than a little agitation.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Other red states like Nebraska, Utah and Idaho have had success with ballot measures on Medicaid expansion, but the vote in Oklahoma comes as voter turnout is in question amid the pandemic.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

The potential expansion of Medicaid in Oklahoma, a deep-red state, would run counter to the Trump administration’s efforts to unravel the Affordable Care Act for years.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Also on the ballot in Oklahoma is a measure to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. Supporters petitioned to put it on the ballot after resistance from state Republicans.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Nine republicans are running in Oklahoma’s Fifth Congressional District to unseat Kendra Horn, a Democrat who flipped the district in 2018.

Isabella Grullón Paz June 30, 2020

Polls are closing in Oklahoma, where the race to watch is the Republican primary in the Fifth Congressional District. Okla. 5th District primary results »

Luis Ferré-Sadurní June 30, 2020

Meanwhile, in New York City, elections officials said they won’t begin counting all the absentee ballots from last week’s primaries until next week. New York results »

Jonathan Martin June 30, 2020

My first day reporting in Kentucky, I talked to two voters who already voted for McGrath absentee — and did so before they saw Booker coming on. Absentee votes were the difference. Read more »

Jonathan Martin June 30, 2020

Earlier today, Amy McGrath was declared the winner in last Tuesday’s Democratic Senate primary in Kentucky, fending off a challenge from a progressive rival, Charles Booker. Kentucky Senate primary results »
