DemDaily: Performances, Playoffs and Primaries

June 12, 2018

In CA's open 39th CD, Gil Cisneros (D) won 2nd among 17 candidates to advance to general election against Young Kim (R)

 

It has been a week of exceptional performances, playoffs and primaries.

Last Tuesday, in the eight-state primary, Democrats moved one step closer to retaking the majority in the House of Representatives -- by avoiding a shutout in California's jungle primary with the election of candidates to the top-two general elections slots in all seven of the Districts targeted for flipping from Red to Blue.

On Thursday, the Washington Capitals beat the Vegas Golden Kights, 4-3, to win the first Stanley Cup Championship of their 44-year history.

Lars Eller put the Caps ahead 4-3 with the game-winning goal in the 3rd period, and team Captain Alexander Ovechkin was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoffs' most valuable player.

Justify's 52-year-old jockey, Mike Smith, became the oldest jockey to ever win the Triple Crown
