Today’s Decisions in Utah and North Carolina
Elsewhere on primary/runoff day . . .
For all intents and purposes, Utah Republicans pick their state’s next senator today, between Mike Lee and Tim Bridgewater; polling indicates a Bridgewater lead. The winner takes on Democrat Sam Granato and his $23,388 cash-on-hand.
In North Carolina, a hard-fought and pretty close Democratic Senate primary comes to an end; either Elaine Marshall or Cal Cunningham will take on incumbent Republican Richard Burr. If you’re a Burr fan, you probably prefer Cunningham, but the closest either Democrat has gotten so far is 7 percentage points.
