Nathan Deal vetoed a bill Tuesday that would have allowed licensed owners to carry guns on campus in all but a few buildings.

Bernie Sanders won the Indiana Democratic primary on Tuesday night, giving his campaign a moral boost if not an actual path to the Democratic nomination. "I think there may be a possibility that Clinton could get Sanders out before the end of this process, and winning a state like Indiana may be helpful as she tries to nudge him out," said Kyle Kondik, of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics.

Geoff Skelley at the UVA Center for Politics says Stewart is facing a difficult race. “If Stewart couldn’t win the lieutenant governor nomination last time in a field that was not terribly strong, the fact that he is running against Ed Gillespie and Rob Whitman, I think that is a much stronger pair of opponents."

(Commentary) What will the ultimate impact of Bernie Sanders’ campaign be, and has it been as historically significant as it feels to supporters? When I pose this question to Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the UVA’s Miller Center, she credits Sanders' rise with his ability to inspire “[male and female] millennials and women who are not taken with Hillary Clinton.” More specifically, he is “tapping into millennial anger over student debt, lack of jobs, and fear that they won’t be able to equal their parents’ lifestyle, let alone have a better life.”

And Trump has been on a tear, racking up bigger-than-expected wins in recent weeks. "Indiana really is a must-win for Cruz in order to prevent Trump from winning on the first ballot," said Kyle Kondik of Sabato's Crystal Ball, a website run by UVA’s Center for Politics.

The Republican nomination race will likely be over if Trump wins Tuesday’s Indiana primary, said Geoffrey Skelley with the UVA Center for Politics. “There’s a decent chance Trump can reach 1,237 bound delegates by the time voting ends on June 7, or at least get to that mark with the support from some unbound delegates from the Pennsylvania delegation who have suggested they will vote for Trump,” he said.
