Three House Primaries To Watch on Tuesday


Voters cast their ballots at the Virginia City Highlands Fire Station November 4, 2008 in Virginia City Highlands, Nevada. After nearly two years of presidential campaigning, U.S. citizens go to the polls today to vote in the election between Democratic presidential nominee U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) and Republican nominee U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).(Max Whittaker/Stringer)

It's the latest round in the grudge match between Huckabee allies and the Club, which dates back to 2006. Democrats are also competing to hold the 4th District, but they face an uphill climb. Attorney Q. Byrum Hurst entered the race late to save his party from two unenergetic, unviable candidates, but he had faced a torrent of bad press about personal tax issues since then. Democrats are also vying for the nomination to take on Republican Rep. Rick Crawford in Arkansas's 1st District, but the race has been slow to take shape. State Rep. Clark Hall is favored by national Democrats and seen as one of the party's best hopes to win a Southern seat this cycle, but he has two primary opponents to get past first: prosecutor Scott Ellington and professor Gary Latanich. Hall is the only one of those three to hit television in the primary.
