Republican attorney general could be set for runoff as Texas primary votes roll in

The Guardian says Texas voters headed to the polls on Tuesday in the first primary contest of the US 2022 midterm elections.

Polls closed at 7 pm local time in most of the state. There was relatively low turnout in the contest so far, and voting proceeded on Tuesday with a few hiccups. In Harris county, home of Houston, some voting machines went down Tuesday morning because of glitches. In Tarrant county, home to Fort Worth, more than a dozen polling locations were closed because one of the parties did not have enough election judges present.

The state attorney general, Ken Paxton, a staunch Donald Trump ally who has the former president’s endorsement, is seeking the Republican nomination for a third term in office.

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
