Eight states are holding primary contests on Tuesday, including California, where an unconventional primary system could create headaches for both Democrats and Republicans. The FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast team previews the California races and dives deep on how the state evolved over the past three decades into one of the most liberal in the country. The crew also explores other notable races around the country and the ways incumbency may help Democratic senators this fall.
