Long has a big lead over Turner but it's still super early and it looks like it's mostly stuff from parts of the state where she should be strong so far.

According to Wikipedia, he alluded to shooting members of the US Senate at a townhall meeting.

Looks like the alleged ''threat'' of Charles Barron taking NY-08 was a bogus one. Either that, or David Duke's endorsement nuked him. He's getting clobbered 3-1.

No close races (or at least no close ones that I care about). Lame!

The next close one will probably be the Missoura GOP Senate primary, but that's not till August.

So Barron gets wiped out, Rangel and Hatch win easily.

Next up: Texas Senate runoff, but we have a thread for that.

Why did Long dominate upstate so much, when she is from the city just like Turner?

Auston Johnson is narrowly losing reelection for Auditor with half the precincts in. My family voted for him. He's been in office for 17 years.

She's actually from upstate originally.

I derive an inexplicable joy from the sight of random incumbents like Sullivan getting booted. Speaking of which, to Hatch's win I have but one thing to say...

Hatch is god awful. But Sullivan is from my district, and I'm so happy he's out now. That drunkard  will no longer be in congress!

Yeah, and he's losing to someone who isn't even certified to be an account. John Dougall (who will most certainly win in November) is a politican through and through who will needlessly politicize the job of Utah state Auditor.

Other Utah primaries of note; Donna McAleer trashed Ryan Combe in the Democratic primary for Utah's 1st district, and will go on to face Rob Bishop (and be thrashed herself, because Rob Bishop is the ultimate Utah politician). For the Republican Attorney General primary, John Swallow smashed Sean Reyes. Swallow was (along with his boss Mark Shurtleff) not only responsible for ultra-politicizing the Attorney General's office, but also key in suing the Feds over Obamacare and state control of public lands.

In the Salt Lake County GOP Mayoral Primary (important because Salt Lake County has about half of Utah's residents), it looks like Mark Crockett beat West Valley Mayor Mike Winder by 200 votes. There might be a recount, but if there isn't, Crockett will face Ben McAdams in November. This is interesting, because Crockett has never been a mayor, and was voted out of his Salt Lake County Council seat after one term. From what I understand, Crockett is a Tea Party type, very conservative and a bit of an ideological zealot who doesn't play nice with others. Winder was an establishment type Republican who had a scandal recently where he wrote pro-Winder articles in the Deseret News under a false name (Richard Burwash). Fun fact: Ben McAdams jokingly claimed that Richard Burwash endorsed him. Either way, Salt Lake County tends to go Democratic (unlike the rest of Utah), so I predict a McAdams win in the general election.

As for Hatch... he's too far-right for my tastes, so you can imagine how I felt about Liljenquist. Hatch will face Scott Howell in the face, and judging by Scott Howell's 30-point defeat to Hatch twelve years ago, you can guess how this will end.

I'm utterly shocked - Johnson will lose his bid to remain Utah's Auditor to a guy who isn't even a CPA, but a career politician. Wow...

The race for Salt Lake County mayor, GOP primary, is also crazy. Mark Crockett, whom I supported, leads by 200 our of 68,000 votes cast. All precincts reporting.

Edit: Hey Pioneer! Smiley You beat me too it, you hadn't posted yet when I began replying.
