Overview and Live Results: Massachusetts Primary

The 2022 primary calendar is winding down with four East Coast states. This Tuesday is Massachusetts, with Delaware, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island all following in one week. 

Louisiana will hold its version of primaries on November 8, the same day as the general election in the other 49 states. In the Pelican State, all candidates appear on a single ballot. If one gets a majority of the vote, he or she is elected. Otherwise, the top two advance to a December 10 runoff.

Massachusetts

Voters will choose nominees for Governor, U.S. House, and State Legislature. Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Governor

Although one of the most popular governors in the country, Republican Charlie Baker decided not to seek a third term. Given the lean of the state, the seat is likely to flip to the Democrats in November.

The Democratic nominee will be the state's Attorney General, Maura Healey. Her opponent for the nomination, state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz withdrew from the race in June, although she remains on the ballot.

The Republican primary features former state Rep. Geoff Diehl and businessman Chris Doughty. Former President Donald Trump has endorsed Diehl.

U.S. House

Democrats hold all nine U.S. House seats. Each incumbent is running and unopposed for renomination. All are likely to be reelected in November.
