President Donald Trump will be able to claim victory after a pair of down-ballot contests Tuesday evening where two high-profile Republican candidates he supported prevailed in primary races.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions came up short in a fight for his political life. Democrats picked their candidate to take on Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins in the fall, and Trump's former physician Ronny Jackson won a GOP primary runoff for a Texas congressional seat.

Those were a few of the top takeaways from a slate of primary elections and runoffs Tuesday in Maine, Alabama and Texas.
