Check it out:
Will Oklahoma head to overtime?
Mississippi’s Senate runoff has pushed the Oklahoma GOP primary out of the national spotlight — and might have boosted the establishment’s favored candidate, Rep. James Lankford (R-Okla.), in Tuesday night’s undercard Senate race.
Can Rangel get one more term?
Cochran isn’t the only incumbent on the ropes this week, either. In Harlem, Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) is in a tough fight for his final term against a challenger he only edged two years ago by 1,086 votes.
Can Republicans tame the Tea Party in New York?
New York Republicans are hoping their preferred candidates will beat back challengers in two races that could have a big impact on House control.
Can GOP avoid a Tancredo headache?
Former Reps. Bob Beauprez and Tom Tancredo, Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler and former state Sen. Mike Kopp are vying for the GOP nomination to face incumbent Gov. John Hickenlooper (D). It’s the second time for both Beauprez and Tancredo after unsuccessful first attempts, and the two are close in the scant polling that’s been done on the race.
Will Brown be the country’s next black governor?
In Maryland, all eyes will be on the state’s Democratic primary for governor, where Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown leads his two main challengers, Attorney General Douglas Gansler and state Del. Heather Mizeur. A recent Washington Post survey found Brown polling with 46 percent support, and his closest challenger, Gansler, with 23 percent.
