Okay, the air is pretty much out of the GOP Presidential contest, and President Obama has gone over the top in the Democratic nominating process, but that doesn't mean there's aren't things to keep an eye tonight.  For details, continue over the fold...

Five states vote today: CT, DE, NY, PA, RI

8 PM Closings

Pennsylvania: In addition to the Presidential contest, Pennsylvania has a regular Primary election with four interesting races:

for Attorney General, Former Congressman Patrick Murphy (endorsed by David Alexrod) and Lackawanna County ADA Kathleen Kane (endorsed by Bill Clinton) compete for the Democratic nomination.  Kane led in the latest polling.

for US Senate, five Republicans are running for the right to lose to Bob Casey.

in CD-12, redistricting pushes Congressmen Mark Critz and Jason Altmire together for a mano a mano battle.  Last polling gave Altmire the lead, but Critz was narrowing the gap.

in CD-15, Lehigh Cty Democratic chair Rick Daughtry goes up against former Congressional Aide Jackson Easton for the Democtratic slot against Congressman Charlie Dent (currently considered a safe Republican seat)

Delaware: In order to show some momentum, Newt Gingrich has been making a serious effort to turn out votes, and has indicated that he may withdraw if the results aren't promising.

Connecticut: A Presidential-only primary, with no expected surprises.

9 PM Closings

New York and Rhode Island: Presidential-only Primaries.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
