One of the most consequential Senate races of the 2018 midterms may finally get its general election lineup tonight.

What to watch: The GOP primary for Senate in Arizona, where two Trump-loving Republicans are facing Rep. Martha McSally, who didn't endorse him in 2016. She's the likely frontrunner, but hasn't secured the coveted Trump endorsement yet.

One candidate who's not sweating the elections tonight is Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who's running unopposed in Arizona's Democratic primary for Senate.

The Florida Senate race will be a closely watched competition between incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Both are running unopposed in their primaries.

President Trump said twice Monday that the U.S. Treasury would need to get a portion of the sale price of TikTok, as a condition of regulatory approval.

Why it matters: This is akin to extortion — the sort of thing you'd expect to hear on a wiretap, not from the White House in front of reporters.

Ford announced Tuesday that James Farley will take over as its next CEO, replacing James Hackett, 65, who is retiring after three years in the job.

Why it matters: It leaves Farley to complete the company's ongoing turnaround effort. The transition will be that much harder as the industry tries to navigate the coronavirus-induced economic slowdown which shuttered Ford plants for two months on the eve of some of its most important vehicle launches.
