6:17 PM PT: The very first precincts are coming in — one in SD-02 and one in SD-14.
6:28 PM PT: With 6% reporting, Randy Hopper is up 54-46. Jen Shilling is up 52-48 with 7% in.
6:30 PM PT: 8% of precincts are in in the 2nd, and Cowles is up 62-38, but we're talking very tiny numbers of votes here - 665 to 406.
6:34 PM PT: In the early going, Republicans are leading in all races but 32. It's still just a trickle so far, though, and it's very unlikely that these wide margins will hold.
6:39 PM PT: In the 14th, Clark is down 55-45 with 22% of precincts in, but mostly it's been unfavorable turf reporting so far. Clark needs to outperform JoAnne Kloppenburg's April numbers by about 4.5%, but he's only around 0.5% better right now.
6:40 PM PT: As for the other Democrats, compared to the KloJo April numbers,
Nusbaum needs 7.7; Pasch 7.5; Clark 4.6; King 3.0.
