Results & Poll Closing Times (all times Eastern):
7:24 PM PT: Milwaukee Sheriff: 9 percent in and things look better for conservative Democrat David Clarke. He now leads Chris Moews 55-45 in the primary. Keep in mind different areas in Milwaukee County have very different voting patters (The suburbs can vote very differently from the city of Milwaukee), so it's too early to say what's going on here.
7:26 PM PT: MN-06: 16 percent in and Emmer continues to run away with this, leading 73-27. This district is safe for any Republican who isn't retiring Rep. Michele Bachmann.
7:27 PM PT: WI-06: 36 percent in and Grothman leads Stroebel 42-29, with Leibham at 26. Still none of Leibham's Sheboygan base is in.
7:29 PM PT: MN-GOv: 32 percent in, and Johnson leads Zellers 33-24, with Honour at 23 and Seifert at 16. What's helping power Johnson is good leads in the Twin Cities area.
7:33 PM PT: WI-06: 40 percent in and Grothman leads both opponents 40-28. Still none of Leibham's Sheboygan base is in, which could make a difference. But given Grothman's controversial history, Dems have to be happy.
7:36 PM PT: WI-AG: With 31 percent in, Jefferson County DA Susan Happ continues to look dominant in the Democratic primary for this open seat. She leads with 55 percent, far ahead of state Rep. Jon Richards' 29. Happ is leading in both Dane and Milwaukee, the home-bases of both her foes and far from her rural base.
7:39 PM PT: MN-Gov: 37 percent in and Johnson's lead over Zellers has shrunk slightly to 32-24.
7:42 PM PT: MN-01: 43 percent in and Hagedorn leads NRCC favorite 54-46. The GOP never looked serious about targeting Tim Walz, but can't be happy if the very underfunded Hagedorn makes it through.
7:43 PM PT: MN-06: No surprise, but the AP has called this for 2010 gubernatorial nominee Emmer. Should have no problem succeeding Bachmann, and may even take her place in line in the House GOP Crazy Caucus.
7:48 PM PT: MN-Auditor: This race got some attention when Democratic incumbent Rebecca Otto received a primary challenge from former state House Minority Leader Matt Entenza, who was the third-place finisher in the 2010 gubernatorial primary. Turns out Otto wasn't in much danger: She leads 82-18, and the AP has called the race.
