So many other things are obviously on our minds right now, but we would be remiss if we didn’t update you on a few important primaries.
On Super Tuesday II, Theresa Greenfield was officially nominated to be the Democratic nominee for Senate in Iowa. And down the ballot in MT-AL, NM-3, IN-5 and PA-1, Kathleen Williams, Teresa Leger Fernandez, Christina Hale and Christina Finello also advanced to the general election.
But we had a couple of hard losses. In Montana’s gubernatorial primary, former Lieutenant Governor Mike Cooney defeated Whitney Williams, and in MD-7, Maya Cummings failed to win even 10% against incumbent Kweisi Mfume.
We don’t have time to be upset though, because there are six more upcoming primaries that are really important for women to win. View the rest of our June 2020 primary candidates and chip in $5 to each of them.
On June 9, Teresa Tomlinson and Sarah Riggs Amico will square off against frontrunner Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s US Senate race. Ossoff has a big lead in the polls, but he’s still running below 50%—meaning Tuesday’s runner-up could face him again in a runoff.
Also on June 9, Carolyn Bourdeaux is hoping to make it out of a crowded primary (though she is the frontrunner) to compete again for GA-7, a seat she almost flipped in 2018.
Later in the month, on June 23, Amy McGrath is also facing a crowded primary (though again, she is the frontrunner) to challenge Sen. Mitch McConnell for his seat. There are also three New York primaries that day in flippable districts: NY-1 (Nancy Goroff and Bridget Fleming), NY-2 (Jackie Gordon) and NY-24 (Dana Balter). Stay tuned for more information on those.
