Richmond, Va. (Newsradiowrva.com) --  Voters in many areas of Virginia will have primaries to vote in on Tuesday.  Both Republicans and Democrats will be holding primaries, although not all locations will have both parties selecting candidates, and in some cases, there may be no races.  You can find a list of Republican races here.  You can find a list of Democratic primaries here.

Local political expert Bob Holsworth says the Democratic primaries for challengers to Senators Glen Sturtevant (R-Richmond/Chesterfield) and Siobhan Dunnevant (R-Henrico) will be worth watching.  Both districts are being targeted by Democrats in their quest to flip the State Senate.

Holsworth also recommends keeping an eye on the Democratic Senate primary in Petersburg, where challenger Joe Morrissey is taking on current State Senator Roslyn Dance.
