Welcome to Post Politics Now.
Also, some marquee matchups in Georgia have been set for November following Tuesday’s primaries. Gov. Brian Kemp (R) will face a 2018 rematch with voting rights activist Stacey Abrams, who is trying to become the first Black female governor in the country. Former football star Herschel Walker, who easily won in Tuesday’s GOP Senate primary, will face Democratic Sen. Raphael G. Warnock. Their contest will be the first time Georgia’s two leading parties’ nominees for Senate are Black.
Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania GOP Senate primary race between celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund CEO David McCormick is officially headed to a recount. The state’s top election official said the margin between McCormick and Oz, who has Trump’s endorsement, is thin enough to trigger one. The move pushes the outcome of the race into June as counties have until June 7 to recount the ballots and inform the secretary of state of their findings by June 8.
