PRIMARY VOTING DAY

News

Voters head to the polls in several states on this Primary Day, as new conservatives are taking on incumbents who have consistently served their districts.

Among them are candidates in Colorado, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, Oklahoma and Utah. These include two of the longest-running members of Congress, US Sen. Thad Cochran, Mississippi and a member of the Republican Party and US Representative Charles Rangel, Democrat, NY.

These are two of the longest serving members in Congress who face challenges that could basically end their careers.

In New York, Charlie Rangel is seeking a 23rd term. He’s still stung by a 2010 ethics scandal, and the high-profile black lawmaker also faces demographic shifts in an increasingly Hispanic district.
