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

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.
