Here’s Your August 2nd Election Night Open Thread

Another Tuesday, another Primary.

So what’s going on tonight? Five states are holding primaries with several key races to watch.

First of all, here’s the lowdown from Fox News on which races and when the polls close:

AZ Governor & Senate
MI Governor, MI-03, MI-11
MO Senate
WA Senate, WA-03, WA-04, WA-08
KS Governor, KS abortion amendment

Arizona @ 7PM MT
Kansas @ 7PM CT
Michigan @ 8PM ET
Missouri @ 7PM CT
Washington @ 8PM PT

Now let’s dive a little deeper:

The race for Arizona Governor is against Kari Lake and Taylor Robson. Right now Kari Lake is polling +11 points and should win an easy victory.

The race for Arizona Senate is between Blake Masters, Jim Lamon, and Mark Brnovich. Masters is dominating the polls by +15 over his opponents.

The race for Michigan Governor, where we saw five Republican candidates thrown off the ballot in June, is now between Tudor Dixon, Kevin Rinke and several others. Dixon is dominating the polls by at least +22.

The race for Missouri Senate just saw Trump endorse Eric Greitens yesterday, but it looks like his opponent Eric Schmidt shouldn’t have any trouble pulling this one out. Schmidt dominates the polling by +13.

I think these are the key races to watch. There is also a key issue tonight in Kansas on a pro-life amendment to their state constitution:

On Tuesday, voters will cast ballots on the Value Them Both constitutional amendment, which will decide whether elected representatives will have the ability to regulate abortion in Kansas after the state’s Supreme Court previously ruled the 1859 Kansas Constitution grants a “natural right” to abortion.

Hopefully this passes by a strong majority. Whatever happens, it will serve as a barometer on how the country feels about Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade.

As always, here’s a cute Dodo video for you to coronate the election thread:
