Election results: Primaries in Maryland, West Virginia, and Nebraska deliver springboard for November with a couple surprises

Voters in West Virginia, Maryland, and Nebraska cast their ballots Tuesday in both state and presidential primaries in races that will have large implications for the general election.

In Maryland and West Virginia, two open Senate seats were among the most important races of the night, as the outcome of the primaries will set the field for the general election when control of the upper chamber will be decided.



Rep. David Trone (D-MD), who was pursuing retiring Sen. Ben Cardin’s (D-MD) seat, lost in an upset to Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. Alsobrooks will face former Republican Gov. Larry Hogan in November.


There were several open House seats hanging in the balance Tuesday night. In Maryland, Trone’s seat in the 6th District was open as he chased moving to the upper chamber. Former Commerce Department official April McClain Delaney is now the Democratic nominee and will face Republican Neil Parrott, a former state delegate, in the general election. Former Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn lost his bid for Maryland’s 3rd District to state Sen. Sarah K. Elfreth. It is unclear who Elfreth will face, as the GOP primary has not been called as of 12:37 a.m. Wednesday.

Meanwhile, in West Virginia, Rep. Alex Mooney’s (R-WV) 2nd Congressional District seat is open as he hoped to flip the seat held by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). State Treasurer Riley Moore will face Democrat Steven Wendelin in November.:snip:
