It's Super Tuesday, & my cheat sheet has ballooned to include 33 important elections:…

So here's a quick thread highlighting some (lower-profile) races you should absolutely be paying attention to today!
You know the big ones:
—Will Dems be shut-out in any of the 3 crowded Orange Co districts (#CA39, #CA48, #CA49)?
—Will the GOP be shut out in one/both of California's Senate & Gov race?
What else?
In New Mexico, state Rep. Debbie Rodella is facing a primary challenger in the Democratic primary (Susan Herrera). Rodella has killed progressive legislation, such as automatic voting registration. See:…
Iowa Dems & Montana Republicans decide who will face GOP Governor Reynolds & Democratic Senator Tester, respectively. Alabama's governor is trying to make it through her primary, & South Dakota's governorship is wide open.
California is hosting a mountain of District Attorney & Sheriff races featuring candidates running as criminal justice reformers, some in the mold of Philly's Krasner.
Great stories:…
Highest-profile reformist challenges may be against San Diego's GOP DA Summer Stephan & Sacramento DA Anne Marie Schubert (recently in national news over her handling of the Stephon Clark shooting). Eyes are also in Contra Costa, Riverside, Yolo, Orange County, & Santa Clara.
In two districts that Democrats are either favored (#NM01) or highly competitive (#IA03) in, there are very competitive primaries with interesting ideological contrasts. Check out previews:

Democratic challengers will also emerge in GOP-held seats such as Gianforte's #MTAL, the open #NJ11, and top targets districts #CA10, #CA25, #CA45, #CA50, and #IA01.
In California, Democratic state Senator Newman is facing a recall election. A GOP win would end Democrats' supermajority.

It's the inverse in Missouri: Dems are trying to pick-up a red-leaning state Senate district in a special election.
And there are many other races (San Francisco Mayor, San Diego Clerk)—so tons of other interesting stories are bound to pop up once results start rolling in! /end
Late addition: the Bay Area is voting today on a plan to provide $4.5 billion of transportation funds.
