HOUSE RACES TO WATCH

Sunday, June 6, 2010; A03

1 SOUTH CAROLINA DISTRICT 1

Republican primary: Paul Thurmond

vs. Carroll Campbell III vs. Tim Scott

The offspring of the late Sen. Strom Thurmond and the late Gov. Carroll Campbell could be edged out by Tim Scott, the first black GOP state representative since Reconstruction.

1 VIRGINIA DISTRICT 5

Republican primary: Robert Hurt vs. Ken Boyd

vs. Michael McPadden

Despite challenges from several "tea party" candidates, Hurt remains the leading contender to face Democratic freshman Rep. Tom Perriello in November.

1 GEORGIA DISTRICT 9

Special election runoff: Tom Graves

vs. Lee Hawkins

Two Republican state lawmakers are trying to out-conservative each other to take over the seat vacated by Nathan Deal.

1 CALIFORNIA DISTRICT 36

Democratic primary: Rep. Jane Harman

vs. Marcy Winograd

With help from former DNC chairman Howard Dean, Winograd is running to the left of Harman in a district that is solidly Democratic but dominated by the defense and aerospace industries.

1 VIRGINIA DISTRICT 2

Republican primary: Scott Rigell

vs. Bert Mizusawa vs. Ben Loyola

Rigell is the GOP establishment favorite, a distinction that could be a liability in the race to challenge Democratic freshman Rep. Glenn Nye.

1 SOUTH CAROLINA DISTRICT 4

Republican primary: Rep. Bob Inglis

vs. Trey Gowdy

Inglis is trying to fend off primary challengers who have made the race a referendum on his 2008 vote to bailout the banking industry.
