Democrats have two prominent Senate primaries coming up on Tuesday, May 18, in which incumbent senators face challenges from the left.
In Arkansas, Sen. Blanche Lincoln is leading Lt. Gov. Bill Halter by double digits in polls, as unions and progressive groups have spent millions to support Halter's bid.
