Here’s what to look for in tonight’s primary in West Virginia and Nebraska – twitchy.com

Who is ready for some voting?

Today we have primaries in West Virginia and Nebraska and our partner Decision Desk HQ looks at what is “closely watched” in today’s vote:

“Two races that are closely followed are the GOP primaries in WV-02 (with two members in office) and NE Gov”:

Analysis here:

In West Virginia’s second congressional district, we have a dispute between two incumbents – Reps. David McKinley and Alex Mooney – vying for a seat after reorganization:

Rep Mooney has received approval from former President Donald Trump, but Rep McKinley appears to have an advantage with voters in the new district:

And McKinley “it represents 19 of the 27 counties in the new # WV02 including Wood (Parkersburg), Monongalia (Morgantown), Harrison (Clarksburg), Marion (Fairmont) “:

But the latest poll shows Mooney in the lead:

Rep McKinley also has the approval of dem Senator Joe Manchin:

From our post:

“Democratic Senator Joe Manchin in West Virginia has released a new announcement in support of Republican David McKinley racing against incumbent Republican Alex Mooney in the state’s second congressional district.”

And in Nebraska, it’s a 9-a-side race with Charles Herbster, Jim Pillen and Brett Lindstrom backed by Trump in the lead:

Closing question: Could Trump’s approval put Herbster over the top? Stay tuned:

The polls are closing at 7:30 PM ET in West Virginia, at 9:00 PM ET in Nebraska.
