I forgot who's running for Louise Slaughter's seat, I'll find out when I watch the news and/or research what they're going to do. And if Gillibrand is running. Depending on who her opponent is, and if they're a whackjob.

Why not vote for the best person instead of a party

Now that Patrick Morrissey won the primary, I'll be voting Republican. Hopefully he can beat Manchin. I'll be voting Republican down ballot as well. WV used to have reasonable democrats, but now they're all Bernie supporters on the state level.

I’m voting mostly democrat. A couple local seats i care more about the individual, but for rep and gubernational elections i’m pretty solid blue.

Hopefully there will be qualified and capable independents running as well. In any case, I don’t plan on voting for another Republican ever. They will need to purge, disband, rebuild and rename that party first. The taint of claiming association with the "R" has become permanently disqualifying.

It would depend on the candidates. None of the prominent Republicans seem worth voting for, although there are some that I wish would take a greater stand in bringing he party back.

Rand Paul, baby. If he doesn't pursue it, there's a small chance I might go Libertarian. Time will tell.

Lol I'm getting ahead of myself. I'm planning to vote for Travis Allen (R) for governor. But I don't think there's a Republican in the congressional race that I've even heard of. Both the incumbent Democrat and a libertarian who's a write-in candidate are from my neighborhood. The Senate candidates running against Feinstein are all anonymous. No big changes appear imminent here.

I’ll be voting for Bredesen in November against Blackburn, so Democrat it is.

I’d probably vote for the Republican candidates if the election were held today.

Side note: when the results are posted tomorrow morning, they will also be broken down by age group, party identification, & other various groups.
