  • Midterm elections in November. It will determine if Republicans regain control of the House and Senate, how many incumbents will lose their seats,etc. The primaries are just to decide who will be on the ballot come November.

  • Are you asking why do we have primaries, and what are they?
    From what reference point are you asking? Your local primaries or for the general election?
