Primary season is in full swing, and after this week’s results, ActBlue
Democrats will be on ballots in three more states come November.
Jim Himes won the Connecticut primary on Tuesday, and will
challenge the last remaining Republican in the House from New England,
Rep. Christopher Shays. Himes, vice president of an affordable housing
association and a former investment banker, won 87% of the vote with
100% of precincts reporting.
In Nevada, former state party chair and university regent Jill
and Dina Titus, a well-known college professor, became the party’s official nominees. Derby will oppose Rep. Dean Heller for thesecond time in November, and Titus will challenge Rep. Jon Porter in
one of the country’s hottest races. Democrat Shelley Berkley retained
the nomination for a congressional seat representing urban Las Vegas.
Congratulations to all.
