6:17 PM PT: In the NM-01 (D) primary, Michelle Lujan Grisham is up 42-36 over Eric Griego, while Marty Chavez is back at 22. 29% is already reporting.
6:20 PM PT (Steve Singiser): Absolutely no surprise here, except for maybe the margins—Martin Heinrich is blasting Hector Balderas in the Democratic Senate primary in New Mexico (77-23), while Heather Wilson is blowing up Greg Sowards in the GOP primary, as well (82-18).
6:23 PM PT: Results are trickling in in the WI-Gov & WI-LG races, and also the SD-13 recall as well.
6:27 PM PT (jeffmd): 26% reporting in NJ-09 now, where Bill Pascrell continues to hold his insane 88-12 lead of Steve Rothman. 58% of Pascrell's Passaic base is now reporting, though, compared to 5% of Rothman's Bergen base.
6:28 PM PT (James L): In the SD-AL (D) primary, ex-Tim Johnson staffer Matt Varilek is crushing his primary competitor, YouTube sensation (and Minnehaha County Commissioner) Jeff Barth by a 74-26 margin with 35% reporting.
6:30 PM PT (Barbara Morrill): From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Walker also appears to have lost ground among women. He lost women by three points, 48% to 51%, in 2010. But this time he is losing them by 12 points, 56% to 44%.
6:37 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.
6:40 PM PT (jeffmd): Is Steve Rothman about to get Altmired in NJ-09? There's more Bergen in the district, but he's "only" winning 71-29. That won't be enough to keep with Pascrell's 92-8 in Passaic.
6:46 PM PT (jeffmd): 77% reporting in NJ-10 now, and Donald Payne Jr. is still commanding the field with a 61-20 lead over Ron Rice. Expecting the call shortly...
6:51 PM PT (kos): MSNBC calls the race for Walker. We've come up short.
