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)

8:26 PM PT: MN-Gov: 68 percent in and Johnson continues to lead Zellers 31-24. There are a lot of rural areas out and we'll see if that cuts into Johnson's margin. All the candidates but Seifert (who's at fourth with 20 percent) are from Hennepin County, which includes Minneapolis.

8:28 PM PT: WI-06: 73 percent in, and Grothman leads both rivals 40-28. If you're wondering why the DCCC wants Grothman to emerge, look no further.

8:32 PM PT: MN-Gov: The AP has called the GOP primary for Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson. He'll have a tough race against Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton this fall.

8:33 PM PT: MN-Gov: Remember, vote Jeff Johnson: the name you know.

8:36 PM PT: Milwaukee Sheriff: 76 percent in, and Clarke leads 53-47.

8:42 PM PT: WI-06: 77 percent in, and Grothman up 39-29 on Leibham. Most of Sheboygan is out and we're still waiting to see if Leibham can pull off a big win in his home county, but it doesn't look good for him.

8:48 PM PT: CT-Gov: With most precincts in, Foley leads 56-44. Not impressive for a guy who has been the GOP's de facto nominee since his narrow 2010 loss.

8:52 PM PT: WI-06: 81 percent in and Grothman still leads 39-29. It's hard to see this changing enough for Leibham or Stroebel to win.

9:00 PM PT: WI-06: The AP has called this for Grothman. This 53/46 Romney seat will be tough, and Democratic nominee Mark Harirs hasn't raised much. However, Grothman's extremist views and temperament could give Team Blue an opening that Leibham and Stroebel wouldn't have.

9:06 PM PT: WI-06: Hmmm... Sheboygan is starting to break for Leibham. The county results give him a 54-37 lead there with 21 percent reporting. Not expecting the outcome to change, but we'll keep an eye on this just in case.

9:09 PM PT: Milwaukee Sheriff: 87 percent in and things are tight, with Clarke up 52-48.

9:16 PM PT: WI-06: With the new Sheboygan results in, Grothman leads Leibham 38-30, the closest it's been all night. Only 19 percent of Sheboygan is in, and it doesn't look impossible for Leibham to pull of a surprise. We're going to keep watching until it's clear Grothman has really won.

9:35 PM PT: WI-06: All of Columbia is in, and Grothman maintains his 38-30 lead. All that's left is some of Waushara, where Stroebel is doing well, and most of Sheboygan.

9:40 PM PT: WI-06: Most of the city of Sheboygan is out. The city is largely in Leibham's district, and he's doing well there so far. Not expecting him to pull this out, but not over.

9:46 PM PT: WI-06:

Grothman issued victory statement, Stroebel conceded but no word from Leibham yet. Votes still being counted in Sheboygan, his base #wi06

9:53 PM PT: Milwaukee Sheriff: 94 percent in and Clarke remains ahead 52-48.

10:07 PM PT: WI-06: Everything but Sheboygan is in, and Grothman maintains his 38-30 lead.

10:11 PM PT: WI-06: One-third of Sheboygan is in, and Grothman is down to a 37.00-32.69 lead district-wide. We'll see if Leibham has enough juice to keep closing.

10:25 PM PT: WI-06: This is very much not over. More of Sheboygan is coming in, and Grothman's overall lead is only 36.44-33.87. About 2/3 of Sheboygan precincts are reportedly out.

10:25 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.
