WASHINGTON (NEWSnet/AP) — After 146 days, 90 primaries and 17 caucuses in five U.S. territories, the District of Columbia and almost every state, the 2024 presidential primary calendar has finally reached last week.

The remaining contests are a handful of primaries on Tuesday and two Democratic caucuses on June 8.

Voters in Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Dakota and Washington, D.C., will head to the polls Tuesday for both presidential and state primaries; and the very last votes of the presidential primary season will be cast four days later in Democratic contests in Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Iowa will hold primaries on Tuesday for just state and local offices, having held its presidential contests in January and in March.

President Joe Biden, a Democrat, and former President Donald Trump, a Republican, have scored lopsided victories in every contest since securing their parties’ nominations on March 12, but both leading have also faced persistent protest votes in several contests along the way.

Biden will again face organized campaigns in multiple states to vote for “uncommitted” in protest of the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.

And on the Republican ballot, votes have continued to add up for Trump’s chief rival, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, even after she suspended her race. Tuesday’s primaries are the first since Haley announced she would vote for Trump in November – but also the first since he was convicted of felony crimes in the state of New York relating to actions during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Tuesday’s other key races include the Republican primary to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester in Montana, as well as primaries to replace Democratic U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez in New Jersey.
