Discussion Thread: Colorado, Oklahoma, Utah Primaries

Introduction

Today, voters in Colorado, Oklahoma and Utah head to the polls to vote in state and federal (non-presidential) primaries. Absentee ballots in New York's primary are also being released, which will decide a number of primaries from last week.

A couple primaries tonight are expected to be somewhat competitive. In Colorado, the Democratic primary for the US Senate election features former Governor and presidential candidate John Hickenlooper and former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff. The race may have tightened a bit in recent weeks after the state ethics commission found that Governor Hickenlooper had violated state ethics laws while serving as Governor. In Utah's Republican gubernatorial primary, former Governor and presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is seeking the gubernatorial nomination in a tight contest with Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox in a race that polls show as a virtual dead heat. In Oklahoma, there is a mildly competitive GOP primary in Oklahoma's 5th Congressional District to take on incumbent Democratic Representative Kendra Horn, with a runoff in August if no candidate secures a majority of the vote tonight, but the major vote is State Question 802, which is a proposition on the ballot asking whether the state should accept the Medicaid expansion under Obamacare.
