Results & Poll Closing Times (all times Eastern):
Oklahoma (8 PM) | South Carolina (7 PM) | Utah (10 PM)
7:35 PM PT (David Jarman): MS-Sen: Kaboom! The rest of those Jones County votes landed with a thud. The good news for Chris McDaniel is that they boosted him a lot; it's now a 50-50 race with Cochran leading by only a little more than a thousand votes. The bad news for McDaniel is that was his last major pocket of strength, and it's not clear where he makes up the rest.
7:38 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-21: Word is that Matt Doheny has conceded the GOP primary in the 21st to Elise Stefanik. No AP call yet, but Stefanik leads 60-40 with about three-quarters of the vote in.
7:42 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-13: Another lead change on a bonkers night. Charlie Rangel's now leading Adriano Espaillat 47-45, as more Harlem precincts show up.
7:44 PM PT (David Jarman): MS-Sen: Thad Cochran's edging closer to victory, with 95% reporting, and now back up to a 51-49 lead with a nearly 4,000 vote spread again. It's a fascinating comeback from the first round of the primary, and probably will be a case study in GOTV for years to come.
7:46 PM PT (David Jarman): MS-Sen: Here's another way of looking at McDaniel's problem. There are 86 (out of 1,832) precincts left to report. And of those, 15 are in Holmes County, which is 83% African-American.
7:53 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-22: Things are looking a little more comfy for Richard Hanna in the GOP primary in the 22nd; he leads Claudia Tenney 53-47 with 88% reporting. Chenango Co. hasn't showed up in the AP reports yet, but if it were, he'd still lead by 6 with 94% reporting. If he wins tonight, he won't have to avail himself of the Independence Party line to win in November; in fact, he won't have any opposition whatsoever.
7:54 PM PT (David Jarman): MD-Gov: There's an AP call on the mostly-forgotten GOP side of the race; Larry Hogan is the winner, leading David Craig 42-31, and he'll be a speed bump versus Dem Anthony Brown in November.
7:58 PM PT (David Jarman): MS-Sen: We're up to 97% reporting in Mississippi, and Thad Cochran's holding steady with at 51-49, with a 5,662 vote edge now. Unfortunately, we may be on track for some real ugliness in the coming days, as the hard right realizes that alleged-RINO Cochran pulled out an unexpected victory with a big assist from black voters.
8:00 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-21: The AP gave the checkmark to Elise Stefanik, so that one's in the books too, at 60-40 with 84% reporting.
8:04 PM PT (David Jarman): NY-13: Things seem to be gelling in the 13th, where we're up to 54% reporting and it's still 47-45 in Charlie Rangel's favor in the Dem primary. So, he might eke out those last two years after all.
