While we anxiously continue to watch the tally in Arkansas, here's a quick synopsis of some of other other activity across the country.

  • Shock of the night thus far on the Dem side happened in South Carolina: Victor Rawl, who had actually raised six figures in his bid to challenge Jim DeMint, has lost (59-41) to Alvin Greene, who has raised so little cash that he didn't even need to file an FEC report.
  • Runoffs will determine GOP nominees in SC-01, SC-03, and SC-04, where Rep. Bob Inglis will survive the night, but it is only a temporary reprieve. He has just 26% of the vote, well behind Trey Gowdy, who has 42% of the vote.
  • Results in Maine just seem to be trickling in. Two hours after closing, we are looking at around 10% of precincts reporting. Waterville Mayor Paul LePage leads with 34% of the vote, leading presumptive frontrunner Les Otten (19%). On the Democratic side, Steve Rowe (32%) and Libby Mitchell (31%) are locked up in a dead heat.
  • Meanwhile, in the Garden State, the Republican voters of New Jersey are tossing a curveball or two tonight. Former NFL lineman Jon Runyan held on to win in NJ-03, but by a thoroughly unspectacular margin (59-41). Ditto for moderate freshman Republican Leonard Lance, who leads his primary in NJ-07 by an underwhelming 56% of the vote.
  • In South Dakota, the GOP got their most electable candidate for Governor as Lt. Governor Dennis Daugaard was an easy winner. Not so easy was the path for Sec. of State Chris Nelson, who actually trails Kristi Noem in the battle to take on Rep. Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin.

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.
