    The first round of results from Nevada are finally in. Adam Laxalt, the Trump-endorsed candidate for Senate, has a comfortable early lead. If he wins, he will face Catherine Cortez-Masto, one of the most vulnerable Democratic senators, this fall.

    With just over 25 percent of precincts reporting, it’s looking like a steeper hill to climb for Tom Rice to make it to a runoff. He’s trailing his primary challenger Russell Fry by 20 points. Fry has 45 percent of the vote.

    Gov. Janet T. Mills of Maine, a Democrat, and Paul LePage, a Republican, advanced to the general election for governor. Both were uncontested. LePage was governor from 2011 to 2019, when he was succeeded by Mills.

    In the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, voters are casting ballots in a special election to replace Representative Filemon Vela, a Democrat. Republicans are aggressively courting voters in the heavily Hispanic district, but the winner will only hold office until January.
