5 things to know Tuesday

South Carolina headlines primaries in four states

Voters in four primary states on Tuesday will weigh in on issues that will animate general elections across the country this fall, from abortion to former President Donald Trump’s political power to battle for control of Congress. Most political eyes are on South Carolina, where incumbents Rep. Tom Rice, RS.C. and Rep. Nancy Mace, RS.C. face challengers backed by the ex-president. Rice was one of ten House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for inciting the insurrection, while Mace opposed impeachment but has criticized Trump for his conduct. Voters in Nevada, meanwhile, will decide the nominees in a fall Senate race that could turn on the abortion issue – and decide control of the U.S. Senate. A Republican senator in North Dakota faces a major challenge, while voters in Maine set up an interesting governor’s race in the fall.
