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

5:24 PM PT (David Nir): VA-07: Unbelievable! Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor just lost his primary to a total unknown! More here.

5:29 PM PT: VA-08: The AP has called the Democratic primary for Don Beyer. Will easily take this 68 percent Obama seat.

5:31 PM PT: SC-Sen-A: It looks like Lindsey Graham will avoid Eric Cantor's fate. With 17 percent in, he leads with 62 percent of the vote.

5:41 PM PT: ME-02: Results are very slowly trickling in. Both parties have contested primaries in this Democratic-leaning but competitive seat. For Team Blue it's state Sen. Emily Cain against Senate President Troy Jackson. For Team Red it's former Senate President and 2012 nominee Kevin Raye against former Treasurer Bruce Poliquin.

5:46 PM PT: We're still waiting on a call in SC-Sen-A, but it's clear Lindsey Graham will win without a runoff. ME-02 is coming in very slowly, and polls in NV-04 and NV-LG won't close until 10 PM ET.

5:52 PM PT: ME02: Early results give Cain a 73-27 lead in the Democratic primary. On the GOP side Poliquin leads Raye 67-33. Poliquin is much more conservative and would probably have a harder time in this 53 percent Obama seat.

5:54 PM PT: SC-Sen-A: 38 percent in and Graham down to 59 percent. Getting closer, but he's no Eric Cantor.

6:03 PM PT: ME-02: Things are moving with the speed of molasses here. With nine percent in, Cain leads Jackson 74-26, and Poliquin leads Raye 61-39.

6:09 PM PT (David Nir): The liveblog 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.
