The whole of the US is feeling the uncertainty with the "mid-term" elections.

But Arizona is in a dilemma all its own.

Arizona's primary election is 28 August,
which is tomorrow where this data is being entered.
On top of which,
long-standing Arizona Senator John McCain has just died.
His military funeral is Friday, 31 August.
According to Arizona state law,
the state's acting governor must name McCain's replacement;
and said governor has gone on the record as saying
that, out of respect to McCain's surviving family members,
the funeral takes precedent over the next appointment.

Thus, Arizona voters will take to the polls tomorrow,
voting for the other Senatorial seat candidates
as well as US Representative races;
and then they must wait until after 31 August
for the Arizona governor
to announce who will serve out McCain's Senatorial term.

It seems as if anything at all might happen.
And this from a state where,
when I was a small child,
the big Senator was Barry Goldwater.

Tomorrow is primary day here in Florida. I shall vote, though I'll admit to not being well-informed about some of the candidates. In most cases, I'll probably fall back on the "When in doubt, just vote for the woman!" rule.

In November the playing field is unconstitutionally slanted by Republican Gerrymandering, closed polling places in dense areas, Russian control of voter registration data and well practiced control of Diebold voting devices. Voter suppression is even more streamlined today.    To which I say "May the most successful corruption win."

Feeling some relief following the Arizona results.
Old Man Arpaio lost the primary.
The Senate seat in question has its candidates now,
ready for the November election; both are women.

As for the US Congress Representatives,
Ann Kirkpatrick, who got all baited-and-switched in the
FOX News snafu months ago,
won her primary and will be one of the November candidates
for the district centered around Tucson, Arizona.
A decade or so ago, Kirkpatrick was a Flagstaff, Arizona resident
and was the US. representative for that district.

The recent death of Senator John McCain left Arizona in a subdued mood,
a welcome change from the usual noise of election publicity.
Arizona's governor is required by law to choose a candidate,
or was it to choose a replacement outright, for this seat.
And that too could be concerning.

No, Donuel........

McCain seat goes thru 2024.

Governor appoints a replacement who will serve through 2020 election. By state law, that must be a Republican.

In November, 2020, the regular election will elect someone to serve the remaining two years.

The 2018 election will choose a replacement for Sen. Flake (retiring).

Donuel,

You state:
"In November the playing field is unconstitutionally slanted by Republican Gerrymandering, closed polling places in dense areas, Russian control of voter registration data and well practiced control of Diebold voting devices"



"Maryland is proof that gerrymandering isn't just a Republican pastime, as the state's Democrats redrew those boundaries in 2012. The standout in that state is the 3rd Congressional district, which is the nation's second-most gerrymandered and home to Democratic congressman John Sarbanes."

WASHPO

Gerrymandering is done by BOTH parties, and is a political evil that never seems to be complained about when it leads to Democratic victories.



The rest of your points are equally in doubt, as you make no claims of a factual nature.

Ach, there they go AGAIN.

And meanwhile, in the civilized world,
Massachusetts has its primary election the Tuesday after the long holiday weekend for Labor Day.

Elizabeth Warren, whom President Trump refers to as Pocahontas,
is running for re-election here.
I will be curious to see how
Barbara L'Italien makes out --
she benefited from the FOX News Channel bait-and-switch snafu.

neither knows nor cares that there is a primary election this month.

Down here in Texas Democrat Beto O'Rourke, a congressman from El Paso, is giving Senator Ted Cruz a run for his money. He's making enough noise and money that Trump has scheduled a campaign visit to the state next month. Considering how Trump and Cruz went hammer and tongs against each other in the presidential primary, this move by Trump signals that Cruz is in trouble.

Gawd Cruz makes mw sick. Looking like McCarthy he can't help but sounding like him when he bends the truth is like bending a note an octave on an electric guitar is TOO MUCH.

When he went to Harvard I bet he went by the name Tom Riddle.

There are some incumbents who are still in place, in Massachusetts,
after the primary election, to be November candidates.

The incumbent governor, Scott Baker.
The incumbent representative, Elizabeth Warren.
Mass Sec'y of State Galvin.

The FOX News snafu months ago involved Barbara L'Italien, one of at least half-a-dozen contenders just for the Democratic candidacy for her district's representative. If I heard the reports right, this morning,
then L'Italien is out.
The representative in that district, that primary race did as no other primary race has done in this state: it made the state office impound the results. The two contenders at the top, were less than one hundred votes apart.
Not official yet, but a recount looks likely.

Then there is Ayanna Pressley. She beat out the Democratic incumbent in the primary race; in November her candidacy will be uncontested. And Pressley will be the first African-American woman to represent Massachusetts in the United States Congress.

Which reminds me.
This is not election news, it is Massachusetts news,
and it is about a month old.

The head of the Boston Police was appointed, just recently, when the acting head stepped down. And the new Chief is an African-American, and this is also a first for the Boston Police, to have an African-American chief. In a city which remembers the court rulings on enforced bussing to schools generations ago, this is a big deal.

Series of state primary elections in the US this week.
Including the 2018 primary election for
the state of New York.
Hasn't happened yet -- will get a lot of attention.

Already had, this week,
primary elections in New Hampshire and Rhode Island;
and I read that
one of the race winners in New Hampshire is an Afghan refugee.

The younger Sanders has a presence in social media --
a noisy, smelly, opinionated one!

New Mexico,
a state traditionally as Democratic
as Arizona has been Republican,
is moving forward in its own way.
The US Congress has had Native American men for some time,
but in New Mexico one of the candidates
is a Native American woman --
if she wins, she would be the first such in the US Congress.

Also in New Mexico, a prominent Democrat remarked on
the impact that Trump is having for Democratic party candidates:
"Because the president is going to bring so much attention to himself,
it allows our [Democratic Party]
candidates room to have a conversation with the American people
about kitchen-table issues."

Whatever that means.

Who are the new leaders of the Democratic Party? What is their message?

I'm not seeing any, I'm not seeing one, and I wish I was.
