There is a primary for Republicans in our area who are seeking to run for Congress. Polls are going to be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Virginia.

In the third district (which includes Norfolk, Portsmouth, and the Peninsula) there are two people on the ballot: Terry Namkung and Ted Engquist.

The winner will face Democratic Congressman Bobby Scott in the fall.

In the second district - the Eastern Shore, Virginia Beach, southern Chesapeake and more western parts of our viewing area - there are four Republicans are on the ballot: Jarome Bell, Andy Baan, Tommy Altman and Jen Kiggans. Kiggans is a Republican state senator.

The winner will face Democratic Congresswoman Elaine Luria in the fall.

The other two congressional districts that touch our area, the first district and fourth district, do not have primaries on Tuesday.

News 3 found turnout to be generally light in Virginia Beach on Tuesday, which is typical for a primary election.

Voters told News 3 issues like gas prices and the economy were on their minds as they voted.

Election experts predict the race could be a toss-up come November. The district was redrawn during redistricting, which has made the district more red, but is still expected to be competitive in the fall.

"Do you think Republicans can win this in November?" News 3 asked a voter Donny Damon on Tuesday. "Absolutely. We're taking it back," he responded.

"All I can do is my part and hope everyone does theirs. I think a lot of things are going to change," said Mark Jacobson, a voter.
