Neither party immediately appeared to suffer major setbacks.
Given the state's unique election laws it will take days to sort out its competitive races and determine winners.
Thanks to redistricting, a Democratic and Republican House incumbent were forced to face off, and the Republican won. That's where things get dicier for Democrats, who may not have much margin for error in their quest to take back the House. Dianne Feinstein did win her party's nomination Tuesday. Four Democrats managed to draw more votes there, total, than the eight Republicans running in the traditionally GOP district.
Much of the day's drama focused on women, who fought to make history in some cases and to avoid disaster in others. The pair will face off in November. There are two interconnected findings in the survey that suggest the Republican vision of what voters think about Trump and the GOP may be somewhat misguided. And as Democratic support among white voters - especially evangelicals, and especially non-college-educated people - has gradually eroded, it has gradually made Iowa more hospitable to Republicans, who won a very big midterm victory in the state in 2014.

Maybe moderate Democrats will be fed up with job-killing environmental rules, sky-high taxes, a lousy business climate and all the other nonsense the left has imposed on the formerly golden state.
"We're engaged in an epic battle, and it looks like voters will have a real choice this November - between a governor who is going to stand up against Donald Trump and a foot solider in his war on California", Newsom told cheering supporters at his victory rally in San Francisco's Mission District.
It was a different story in MS, where 66-year-old Gladys Cruz wasn't sure which Republican she would support in the state's Senate primary, but she wants whoever wins to firmly support Trump. "He will make a BIG difference!"
NBC points out that 44 percent is a similar approval rating to those Ronald Reagan (in June 1982) and Barack Obama (in June 2010) had before their midterm elections, in which both parties lost significant seats in the House.
Because of California's unusual primary system, all candidates appear on a single primary ballot, with the top two vote-getters regardless of party advancing to the November election. That allows the possibility of two candidates from the same party qualifying. That's up from the 7-point lead Democrats held in the same poll in April.
