Taylor is running for reelection on the Republican ballot for this primary.

Election turnout is generally low in primary contests.

And they probably won't take a legislative vote this year; the Legislature isn't scheduled to be back in Madison until January.

One measure of the enthusiasm among Nevada Democrats this year: In-person early voting among registered Democrats for Tuesday's primary was 11% higher than for registered Republicans as of June 7, according to the Nevada secretary of state's office. The results will determine whether each party has competitive candidates and may predict whether the GOP or the Democrats will pick up seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate.

Under the system, used now in a few local jurisdictions, the election is over if one candidate wins a majority. An April 12-19 poll by the Nevada Independent and The Mellman Group showed Heller had support of 40 percent of likely voters and Rosen had 39 percent, a dead heat. Hardy lost in 2016 to Democrat Ruben Kihuen, who is not seeking re-election after several women accused him of sexual misconduct.

Below are links to Q and A's for candidates from both parties.

Another issue that has arisen is a "fled voter". Clinton won the state in 2016 and voters unhappy with President Donald Trump gave Democrats easy wins in the gubernatorial and statehouse races. Cramer, 57, is the GOP's top choice, after he changed his mind this spring and said he would run for Senate rather than stay in the House.

In his ad, Helmer warned that the "greatest threat to our democracy" today "lives in the White House", a comment the White House called "reprehensible" and "abhorrent".

In January, Democrat Patty Schachtner also had a surprise victory in a state Senate special election, succeeding in another district that had been held by Republicans and went to Trump by 17 points. Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats after the midterm elections to take control of the U.S. House. District 1 includes Door and Kewaunee Counties, and parts of Brown, Manitowoc, Calumet, and Outgamie Counties. Republican Barbara Comstock won a third term in 2016 by six points even as the district overwhelmingly voted for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. While pundits say Congresswoman Comstock may be vulnerable, she is a formidable candidate who easily beat all of her challengers.

Democrats will decide between Elaine Luria and Karen Mallard. The Peace Garden State has two key primaries: one for U.S. Senate and another for U.S. House. Still, she'll face a hard general election against Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., the likely GOP Senate nominee.
