Two establishment Democratic candidates won in closely watched Senate primaries in Maryland and Pennsylvania on Tuesday. Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., won the primary in Maryland, while former White House aide Katie McGinty emerged victories in Pennsylvania.
Presidential frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both took big steps toward securing their respective parties' nominations in the primaries held on Tuesday. Trump was victorious in all five Republican primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, while Clinton won four of the five Democratic contests.
Reflecting the GOP's tenuous hold on the seat, the results of a recent WMUR Granite State Poll showed Senator Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., and Governor Maggie Hassan deadlocked in the New Hampshire senate race.
