Governors Cruise Through Primaries

"This is turning out to be a much tougher year for senators seeking renomination than it is for governors. While a number of veteran Republican senators have been challenged in primaries, nearly all the sitting governors seeking another term have cruised to renomination," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"At this point, halfway through the 2014 primary season, four longtime GOP senators have been held to no more than 60% of their party's primary vote. Sens. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, John Cornyn of Texas and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina have all been renominated, while Thad Cochran of Mississippi appears to be in an uphill battle to win a runoff on June 24. Meanwhile, only one governor has been renominated thus far with less than 70% of his party's primary vote."
