Previewing Tuesday's Primaries in New Hampshire and Elsewhere

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Voters head to the polls Tuesday in New HampshireRhode Island and Delaware to cast their ballots in races that will be pivotal in determining the Republican Party's chances of winning back the Senate majority in November, as well as determining the strength of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's strategy to regain Republican control of the House.

The Senate primary in New Hampshire pits retired Army general Don Bolduc against more moderate state Senate president Chuck Morse, who is favored to win and has received over $4.5 million from a PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). This race is considered particularly important to the Republican Party, since the winner will challenge incumbent Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) in a race that may prove pivotal in determining which party controls the Senate.

In Rhode Island, Democrats will vote in a tight race to decide whether to back their appointed governor, Dan McKee, who took over when Gina Raimondo resigned to become U.S. Commerce Secretary. Tuesday's primaries are the last 2022 election until Election Day on Nov. 8.

Most coverage from across the political spectrum focused on the GOP primary in New Hampshire and how it could influence Republicans' chances to win control of the Senate.
