Recapping Tuesday's 2022 Primaries and Runoffs

Summary from AllSides News Team

Voters hit the polls for 2022 primary and runoff elections in Washington D.C., Alabama, Virginia and Georgia on Tuesday.

 In D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser won her primary race and will likely win a third term in November. She would be the first D.C. mayor to win a third term since Marion Barry in 1986.  In Alabama, Trump-backed Katie Britt defeated Rep. Mo Brooks, and she is expected to win against Democrat Will Boyd in November while campaigning on behalf of "working Americans." Tuesday's elections also set the stage for several competitive House races: Virginia's 2nd District and 7th District, and Georgia's 2nd District.

Media sources continue to focus on former President Donald Trump's influence on the elections. Some on the right focused on the election of Trump-backed Katie Britt for the Alabama Senate seat, while some on the left focused on the losses of Trump-backed Jack Evans and Vernon Jones in Georgia House races.  Overall, roughly 94% of Trump's endorsed candidates for House, Senate, and gubernatorial office have won their races.
