Incumbent Sen. Roger Wicker cruised to re-nomination in the Mississippi;’s GOP Senate primary, after avoiding a primary challenge from conservative firebrand State Sen. Chris McDaniel. McDaniel will instead be running in an open-party special election for Mississippi’s other U.S. Senate seat on Election Day, the result of GOP Sen. Thad Cochran’s resignation from his seat amid health issues in April. Democrats Howard Sherman and David Baria advanced to a run-off for the Democratic nomination in the race against Wicker. Meanwhile, in the 3rd district Republican primary, Michael Guest and Whit Hughes advanced to a run-off after neither candidate received 50% of the vote.

In Oregon, incumbent Democratic Gov. Kate Brown easily won re-nomination. She heads to a general election contest against Republican primary winner Knute Buehler, who defeated second-place finisher Sam Carpenter by over 15 points. Brown is favored to win re-election in the reliably blue state. Oregon’s lone Republican U.S. House incumbent, Rep. Greg Walden, also breezed through his primary, and he will face Jamie McLeod-Skinner, the winner of the 2nd district Democratic primary, in the general election.
