Results: Arkansas | Maine | Nevada | North Dakota | South Carolina | Virginia

4:40 PM PT: VA-07: If you're just joining us, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is losing his primary. Yes, really.

4:44 PM PT: VA-07: Almost 60 percent in and Brat leads 58/42.

4:48 PM PT: VA-07: There is a Democrat running here, Prof. Jack Trammell. But at 57/42 Romney, it's hard to see him getting much traction.

4:48 PM PT: VA-07: It's too late for Cantor to run as an independent. He can launch a write-in campaign, but will he want to after tonight?

4:49 PM PT: VA-07: 68 percent of precincts in, and Brat leads Cantor 56-44. Looks like game over for Cantor.

4:51 PM PT: VA-07: Up to seventy-one percent in, and Brat continues to lead 56-44. Looks like reports of the tea party's death have been greatly exaggerated.

4:55 PM PT: SC-Sen-A: Only a few thousand votes are in but Sen. Lindsey Graham is up with 72 percent. An hour ago who would have imagined Graham running away with victory as Cantor collapsed?

4:57 PM PT: VA-08: With about 37 percent in, Don Beyer remains easily ahead in the Democratic primary for this safe seat. Leads nearest foe 43-23.

5:06 PM PT: VA-07: No check mark on the site, but the AP is reporting they've called this for Brat. Unreal.

5:07 PM PT: VA-07: And there it is. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has officially lost renomination.

5:10 PM PT: VA-07: Our preliminary numbers say Democrat Ralph Northam carried this district 50.60 to 49.40 over E.W. Jackson. So it is possible to be too crazy to win here, but just barely.

5:15 PM PT: SC-Sen-A: About five percent in, and Graham is crushing his foes with 62 percent.

5:16 PM PT: VA-08: Forty-six percent in and Beyer still has a 45-20 lead over nearest opponent. Only a matter of time before this is called.  

5:21 PM PT (David Nir): The liveblog (holy crap!) continues 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.
