Tuesday primaries, in middle of dual crises, restart election transformed by coronavirus

Tuesday primaries, in middle of dual crises, restart election transformed by coronavirusIn the middle of dual crises confronting the country, voters in eight states and the nation's capital headed to the voting booth on Tuesday - for the single-biggest day of voting since the onset of the coronavirus - restarting a primary season thrown into disarray after states postponed their contests, and injecting some new energy into a transformed campaign trail. The presidential primary and down-ballot contests come not only amid the unprecedented circumstances of a pandemic, but as the nation remains gripped by unrest and protests, fueled by anger and frustration over systemic racial issues compounded by the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after being pinned down by a white Minnesota police officer. Voters in Indiana, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota and the District of Columbia held presidential contests, although the primaries for both parties are already settled with two presumptive nominees in former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.
