Tonight we're liveblogging the Wisconsin recall elections as well as primaries in six states: California, Iowa, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota. Click here for our guide to all the key primaries, and stick with us as we cover all of tonight's interesting races.

Results: Calif. | Iowa | Montana | New Jersey | New Mexico | S. Dakota | Wisconsin

7:10 PM PT: FOX is also calling the LG race for GOP Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

7:17 PM PT (David Jarman): While we wait for more information in NJ-09 -- currently 73-27 for Bill Pascrell with 55% reporting, but that should close -- here's an underwhelming primary performance from a race that's flying under the radar: Republican incumbent Leonard Lance is only at 63% against David Larsen, the same tea partier he faced in the 2010 NJ-07 primary.

7:17 PM PT (James L): In the NM-Sen primary, Democrat Martin Heinrich is well ahead of state Auditor Hector Balderas by 68-32 with 21% of the vote reporting. (On the GOP side, ex-Rep. Heather Wilson is steamrolling teabagger Greg Sowards by 75-25). Meanwhile, NM-01 (D) is still log-jammed at 42-36 for Michelle Lujan Grisham over Eric Griego (with ex-Albuquerque mayor Marty Chavez way behind at 22) with 31% reporting.

7:19 PM PT (jeffmd): WI SD-21: Comparing the same precincts, John Lehman (D) is doing 2.06% better than he did in 2010. He needs to do 2.55% better to win.

7:21 PM PT (David Jarman): We're up to 75% reporting in NJ-09's primary, and it still isn't closing much yet. It's still 70-30 for Pascrell.

7:23 PM PT: In MT-AL (D), Kim Gillan is up 37-20 over Dave Strohmaier with 22% reporting. In MT-Gov (R), Rick Hill has a 36-25 lead over Corey Stapleton.

7:27 PM PT (David Jarman): The AP has called NJ-07 for Leonard Lance, still holding at 62%. Also, they've called the Republican side in NJ-09, only of interest because the nominee is celebrity rabbi (and former Michael Jackson friend) Shmuley Boteach, who wins with 51%.

7:29 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.

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.
