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

6:51 PM PT (Darth Jeff): To recap the winners so far: On the Republican side Dave Brat upset House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in VA-07, while Sen. Lindsey Graham won renomination in South Carolina. On the Democratic side, former Lt. Gov. Don Beyer has won in the safely blue VA-08, while state Sen. Emily Cain has won in the Democratic-leaning ME-02.

We're still waiting on the GOP fight in ME-02. Polls close at the top of the hour in Nevada, where we're watching the GOP match-ups in NV-04 and NV-LG.

6:53 PM PT (Darth Jeff): VA-07: This is brilliant.

7:02 PM PT (Darth Jeff): ME-02: 47 percent in and Poliquin continues to lead 56-44.

7:06 PM PT (Darth Jeff): The AP has been sluggish. With Nevada polls closed, the secretary of state's result page is here.  

7:15 PM PT (Darth Jeff): ME-02: 51 percent in and Poliquin leads 55-45.

7:34 PM PT (Darth Jeff): We're still waiting for our first Nevada results. In the meantime here's an amazing statistic: turnout in VA-07 was up big from 2012, with 65,000 voting today to 47,000 two years ago. Low turnout doesn't appear to be what did Cantor in.

7:38 PM PT (Darth Jeff): Well this explains Nevada's early ganja break:

Storey Co. is holding up the results. Not everyone has made it through the line there yet. Sidenote: Storey is home to fewer than 4k people.

7:41 PM PT (Darth Jeff): NV-LG: Votes are finally beginning to come in here.

7:44 PM PT (Darth Jeff): ME-02: The AP has called this for Poliquin. Leads 55-45 with 66 percent in.

7:46 PM PT (Darth Jeff): NV-04: Assemblyman Cresent Hardy leads GOP rival Niger Innis 46-29. Both would be underdog in November against Rep. Steven Horsford, but Innis preferred Dem opponent.  

7:48 PM PT (Darth Jeff): NV-LG: Looks like the GOP has gotten lucky here. The establishment's preferred candidate state Sen. Mark Hutchinson leads Sue Lowden 54-37. Clark County, where both live and most votes are cast, is going big for Hutchinson.

7:50 PM PT (Darth Jeff): 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.
