(From UPI)

Four states — Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky and Texas — held primary voting Tuesday, further setting the stage for midterm elections this fall, as well as making history.

In Georgia, Stacey Abrams became the first black woman to win the nomination of a major party for governor. In Texas, Lupe Valdez became the first Latina to have that opportunity.

Abrams, a former state legislator in Georgia, easily won the Democratic primary with more than 76 percent of the vote.

This fall, Abrams’ Republican opponent will be either Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle or Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp. Cage won 40 percent and Kemp got 25.6 percent Tuesday, so they will compete in a July runoff to decide the GOP nomination.

In Texas, Valdez, a former Dallas County Sheriff, won the Democratic Party nomination with 53 percent of the vote. She beat Andrew White, the son of former Texas Gov. Mark White, who held the office between 1983 and 1987.
