New Jersey held its primary election on Tuesday, wherein most voters were expected to cast ballots by mail amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Races to watch: In the state's 2nd congressional district, five Democrats are vying for their party’s nomination to challenge Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who in 2019 voted against impeaching Trump as a Democrat, and later switched to the Republican Party.
- Van Drew has received Trump's endorsement for the Republican primary and is not expected to confront any serious threats in the contest.
Results: Sen. Cory Booker won New Jersey’s Democratic Senate primary, according to AP. He faced local activist Lawrence Hamm.
Between the lines: Trump‘s attacks on mail-in voting have generated suspicions among Republican voters toward absentee ballots, worrying Republican strategists, who believe it could hurt their own candidates, the Washington Post reports.
What's next: Polls closed at 8 p.m. EST, but results are not expected Tuesday evening.
