Tonight voters in Connecticut, Minnesota, and Wisconsin hold their primaries. Our guide to the key races can be found here. We'll be bringing you tonight's results as they come in, and you can keep track of all the winners just below:
Results & Poll Closing Times (all times Eastern):

Connecticut (8 PM) | Minnesota (9 PM) | Wisconsin (9 PM)

7:52 PM PT: WI-06: 47 percent in and Grothman leads both foes 40-28. So far the first few Sheboygan precincts favor him over homeboy Leibham 66-25. Grothman has been winning or breaking even in most counties, and if he's even close in large Sheboygan County this is over.

7:54 PM PT: MN-Gov: 48 percent is in but not much has changed all night. Johnson leads Zellers 32-24, with Honour at 22.

7:56 PM PT: Milwaukee Sheriff: 28 percent in, and conservative incumbent David Clarke leads 55-45 in the Democratic primary.

8:00 PM PT: WI-06: 60 percent here and Grothman's lead over Leibham is down to 39-29, with Stroebel at 28. This is the closest it's been, but Leibham needs Sheboygan to come in big for him to have a real shot. So far most of his home county is out.

8:03 PM PT: MN-Gov: 56 percent in and Johnson continues to lead Zellers 32-24.

8:07 PM PT: WI-AG: 50 percent is in and Happ continues to lead Richards 55-30 in the Democratic primary. Happ was outspent but had the backing of EMILY's List and AFSCME. The GOP is fielding Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel, and this is expected to be a competitive race in the fall.  

8:08 PM PT: MN-01: 73 percent in and NRCC favorite Miller now trails underfunded foe Hagedorn 53-47.

8:10 PM PT: MN-Gov: 60 percent is in and Johnson's lead over Zellers has slipped slightly to 31-24. However, Marty Seifert has been picking up support and is now just behind Honour 21-20.

8:14 PM PT: WI-AG: The AP has called this for Susan Happ, who is winning 54-30, a far bigger margin than we expected.

8:19 PM PT: MN-01: The AP has called this for Hagedorn. He's raised a grand total of $86,000, about 20 percent which was from his wallet. Democratic Rep. Tim Walz was usually viewed as a third-tier GOP target at best, and we'll see if Team Red even bothers to play now.

8:20 PM PT: WI-06: 64 percent in and Grothman leads Leibham 40-29. A few extra Sheboygan precincts are in, and Grothman is leading 52-40 there. If Leibham can't open a big lead in the county, game over.

8:22 PM PT: Milwaukee Sheriff: 62 percent in via the Journal-Sentinal and Clarke leads 53-47.

8:23 PM PT: 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.
