5 things to know Tuesday

Michigan, Arizona, Missouri, Kansas and Washington to hold primaries

Five states host primaries Tuesday: Michigan, Arizona, Missouri, Kansas and Washington. Former President Donald Trump, Democratic infighting and abortion are among the chief issues that will help decide which party wins control of Congress and governors’ offices in November. In Michigan, the primary features two themes that have run throughout the election year: congressional Democrats opposing each other because of redistricting and Democratic organizations helping Trump-endorsed candidates because they would presumably be easier to beat in the fall. Kansans will vote on whether to change the state constitution and allow the Legislature to outlaw abortions. In Arizona, the Republican gubernatorial primary features a proxy battle between Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence, the former running mates who might oppose each other for the 2024 presidential nomination.
