Primary Tuesday Tomorrow

CNN Puts Boots on the Ground as Part of 2010’s “Super Primary Tuesday” Coverage

Lead political anchor Wolf Blitzer and CNN’s Best Political Team on Television will be on-air throughout the day on Tuesday, May 18, covering the state primary races and their impact on the political landscape in a year where a number of incumbents already have lost in primary challenges. Senior political analyst Gloria Borger will be on hand to explain the significance of the results, while chief national correspondent John King will man the Magic Wall to breakdown results county by county. Chief political correspondent Candy Crowley will travel to Pennsylvania to cover the contentious Democratic senate primary race between Representative Joe Sestak and Sen. Arlen Specter, both of whom she interviewed Sunday on State of the Union with Candy Crowley. Senior congressional correspondent Dana Bash and national political correspondent Jessica Yellin head to Arkansas and Kentucky, respectively, to cover the tight state races.
Stay tuned to CNN throughout the day and night on 2010’s “Super Primary Tuesday” for the latest results and analysis of how the day’s races impact the balance of power. The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. will extensively cover the primaries, as will John King, USA at 7 p.m., when first returns are expected. Coverage will continue during primetime as the results come in to CNN’s Election Center.

What a waste. And from the outcome of these elections we can predict just what....? That Obama will be a one term President? If people are working and things look better to the average person, these elections will mean nothing. zero.

CNN is already missing the boat with the
primaries. They are portraying the primaries
as anti incumbent but only 2 people are current
senators being challenged by other politicians
in their own parties. The other races do not
have an incumbent. At some point CNN needs
to stop trying to create a narrative and let things
play out. No one knows what this means for Nov.
I don't think viewers are going to be interested
especially if there is no primary in your state.
It is a process and nothing more. Funny how
CNN ignores when the incumbents win. Two
weeks ago there were primaries and the
incumbents won. Know why you did not see
it on CNN, its because this is what the plan
to do all summer long.

Viewers are ONLY interested in Presidential elections. Possibly there will be more interest in Arizona or a State that has problems brewing and have gained national attention. Otherwise, who really cares?
What CNN is trying to do is make some connection between what happens with incombents and the 2012. Things change rapidly and no one is able to predict that far in advance.
You are right. If an incombent wins, there's no news so it gets no mention. It is impossible to recreate the excitment of of '08.

Each race is unique and has different factors
in play, they need to quit generalizing all of
the primaries with one broad brush. Anon
12:55 you are right. Even CNN admits that
voter turnout will be low. Yes you cover all
of the races but this is not a Presidential
election that plays out in 50 states. I just
hope politics will not dominate the news.
As long as CNN keeps speculating about
what might happen instead of what is really
going on they will be in trouble.I think I
might have to tune out CNN for the week
because they will have endless chatter about
3 primaries. That means very little news but
plenty of talk.
