Carolinas Democratic primary voters are deciding which candidates to support for the first time in the state’s history.

Here are the candidates to watch.

EST In the first of a three-part series, we’re profiling the Democratic primary contenders for the state.

The first of two will appear Monday in the Charlotte Observer.

– Part 2: Carolinas’ Democrats: What to expect on the campaign trail The first candidate in the race, U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), is expected to be on the ballot for the primary, a development that could affect the contest.

But that doesn’t mean the race is over.

The Democratic primary contest is only one of the dozen open statewide races in the South, and the winner is unlikely to be the party’s nominee in every race.

Here’s how you can see who’s in the running and who’s not.

Part 1: Kay Hagen’s campaign: The first Democrat to win the seat for the last four decadesKay Hagan is poised to be one of three women vying for the Democratic nomination in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new poll by Public Policy Polling.

She has a slight lead over her GOP rival, former State Senate candidate Jennifer Granholm.

The former lawmaker is leading with 44 percent of likely voters.

The survey found that if Democrats win the U.K. and Virginia House races, Hagan would be the first woman to win a U.P.P., and she’d be the second-most likely candidate to win in the nation.

The poll also found that Hagan’s support is stronger among voters under 30 than older voters.

A third of voters under 40 support Hagan, compared to about two-thirds of voters over 65.

She’s the only Democrat in the field to have a majority of her support come from African Americans, the poll found.

Hagan also has a double-digit lead among voters who identify as Democrats, while Hagan leads among those who identify with the Democratic Party.

The most recent survey, conducted Jan. 29 to Feb. 2, found that 45 percent of Democrats said they were certain to support Hagen, compared with 42 percent of Republicans.

Part 2.

The race to be next: A few races that could decide who wins the Democratic nod: * North Carolina: Democratic Sen. Richard Burr, who is retiring, has been leading his Democratic challenger, former Charlotte Mayor Keith Summey, in recent polls.

In recent weeks, the senator has been touting his record of accomplishment and has pointed to a variety of initiatives.

In a Feb. 6 interview with the Charlotte Business Journal, Burr said that he has a plan to invest $20 billion in Charlotte, the first major local investment of the Trump administration.

“There is no better example of the difference between President Trump and Vice President Pence in terms of how the local government is being run than the Charlotte area,” Burr said.

Burr has also called for the creation of a “superstorm” fund to help rebuild the city.

* Virginia: Democratic Rep. Tom Perriello is the favorite to win his home district of Richmond, which is expected next year to be held by Republicans.

The district is the third-largest in the United States and the seat of former Democratic Gov.

Terry McAuliffe.

In the latest poll by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Perriellos support is above 70 percent.

Perriella is also in a race with former State Sen. and gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel, a Democrat who’s running for a House seat in the 6th District.

The two have a lot of similarities, as both served in the U-S Congress for four years.

Handel and Perrielli both received $9 million from the campaign of former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

*South Carolina: Sen. Lindsey Graham has been polling well in his home state, where he’s leading Republican Gov.

Nikki Haley.

The Republican is running against Democrat Trey Gowdy, who served as a judge in South Carolina’s state legislature for more than 20 years.

The governor’s office released the poll in February showing that Graham’s support was the highest in the region.

Gowdy and Graham are both well-known in the Republican Party, and Graham has made his name in the past as a hard-line conservative.

Graham is also expected to announce his candidacy for the Senate later this year.

*Nevada: Republican Sen. Dean Heller is one of two Republicans running for the seat vacated by Democratic Sen., Shelley Moore Capito.

Heller has been campaigning hard in Nevada, which went for Trump by double digits in 2016.

The state is currently in a tight race between incumbent Democrat Joe Heck and Libertarian Sen. Joe Heck.

Heller’s campaign has also been aggressively courting Republicans in the district, according the Reno Gazette-Journal.

*Texas: Texas
