Daily Kos Elections Liveblog Banner
Tonight voters in Arizona and Florida go to the polls in their party primary, and Oklahoma will hold a runoff in races where no candidate cleared 50 percent in June (Vermont is also up, but there are no notable federal or statewide races to watch). Our guide to the key races can be found here. Polls start to close in most of Florida at 7:00 PM ET and we'll be bringing you tonight's results as they come in. You can keep track of the winners just below.
Results & Poll Closing Times (all times Eastern):

Arizona (10 PM) | Florida (7 PM for Eastern timezone, 8 PM for Central timezone) | Oklahoma (8 PM) | Vermont (7 PM)

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 10:46 PM PT: AZ-01: Reposting from the last thread, here is where we find ourselves:

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 10:42 PM PT: AZ-01: Via once again AOSHQ, Tobin's lead is once again 93 votes. The SoS is mostly caught up with them, but small Yavapai is not online yet.

At this point 19 precincts are left in pro-Kiehne Apache County, 22 precincts out of almost evenly divided Navajo, 15 precincts in Pima (where the two frontrunners are also deadlocked), and 36 precincts out of Pinal, another very tight county. At this point we have one pro-Kiehne county and three tight counties left. This is still very up in the air.

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 10:55 PM PT: AZ-01: For Kiehne to win, he can afford for things to look the same as they do now. He needs a boost in Apache, where there's a bit out and he's doing well. He'll also need to keep things close in Navajo, Pima, and Pinal. In Apache, Kiehne has a 744 vote lead; In the other three counties, Tobin is up by a combined 112 votes.

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 11:00 PM PT: AZ-01: Right now the AP is caught up to where we are. The SoS is still a little behind.

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 11:08 PM PT: AZ-01: About 16 Pinal precincts came in, leaving Tobin with a larger 110 total vote lead.

Still, Kiehne has a real shot here. Significant bits of Apache, Navajo, Pima, and Pinal are still out. In Apache Kiehne is netting 744 votes right now; In the other three Tobin nets 136 votes. If Tobin can expand his lead in those latter three counties he can do this, but Apache gives Kiehne potentially a lot of room to grow. Still, since we don't know how many votes are left in any of the remaining counties, we'll need to wait and see.

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 11:31 PM PT: AZ-01: Not cool. Not cool at all.

Per our contact in Apache County, final dump will come in 90 minutes. IF it is as solid as previous, may push Kiehne ahead.
? @AOSHQDD

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 11:32 PM PT (David Jarman): AZ-01: Put on an extra pot of coffee, because, per AOS, the final (and probably decisive) Apache County vote dump won't happen for another 90 minutes.

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 11:42 PM PT: AZ-01: It's pretty clear that regardless of how the rest of the votes go, this isn't going to be resolved for a while.

With that, we're calling it a night. Check back at Daily Kos Elections Wednesday as we see where both Kiehne and Tobin stand. Thanks for reading and we'll see you back Sept. 9 for our final primary night of 2014!

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at 11:54 PM PT: AZ-01: Oh, what's one more update between friends? Most of Pima is in, and Tobin now leads by 143 votes. It's probably smaller than what he wanted here, but a lot depends on how many votes are left in Apache.

And now we're really calling it a night.

Results & Poll Closing Times (all times Eastern):

Arizona (10 PM) | Florida (7 PM for Eastern timezone, 8 PM for Central timezone) | Oklahoma (8 PM) | Vermont (7 PM)

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at  9:05 PM PT: AZ-SoS: Here's a blast from the past. In 2012's Republican primary for Senate, businessman Wil Cardon hoped he could harness tea party support against then-Rep. Jeff Flake. It didn't work then, and Cardon's not having much electoral luck this year. In the GOP primary for secretary of state, Cardon is in a distant third place with 22 percent; The leader is out front with 44.

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at  9:06 PM PT: AZ-01: Yikes: Tobin leads Kiehne by eight votes in the Secretary of State's count. Kwasman looks like he's just too far behind to pull ahead.  

Tue Aug 26, 2014 at  9:08 PM PT: AZ-01: Now the SoS has Tobin up a mighty 47 votes.

8:37 PM PT: AZ-AG: The AP has results for other counties, and Horne is winning most places outside Maricopa. In his home county of Pima, where Tucson is, he's up 56-44. But via the Maricopa recorder, he's losing that massive county 60-40. Hard to him to recover from a loss that huge in what is by far the state's largest county.

8:40 PM PT: AZ-Gov: Correction: Horne is from the Phoenix area.

8:42 PM PT: AZ-01: Tobin now leads Kiehne by 447 votes. Kwasman is 1,161 votes behind Kiehne.

8:45 PM PT: AZ-Gov: The AP has called this for Ducey. He'll start out the favorite against Democrat Fred DuVal, but no shoo-in.

8:47 PM PT: AZ-AG: With the Maricopa results finally incorporated, Brnovich is smashing Horne 55-45 statewide. As long as Brnovich is running away with this in Maricopa, hard for Horne to make up ground elsewhere.

8:48 PM PT: AZ-07:

.@MaryRoseWilcox just called @RubenGallego to concede. @RubenGallego about to take the stage #az07
? @ralonzo

8:51 PM PT: AZ-01: Tobin now leads Kiehne by 479 votes. Hang on: This one could get turbulent.

8:53 PM PT: AZ-07:

Congratulations @RubenGallego on your victory. I wish you the best of luck. #AZ07
? @MaryRoseWilcox

8:56 PM PT: AZ-09: The AP has called this for veteran Wendy Rogers. Rogers currently leads Andrew Walter 59-41. Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema is favored to keep this light blue seat, but no sure thing.

8:59 PM PT: AZ-07: Ruben Gallego, who has won the Democratic primary in a dark blue seat, currently leads 48-37. Daily Kos endorsed him last month.

9:01 PM PT (David Nir): The liveblog continues here.


Young Mayoral Candidate Gives Good Interview Against the Duopoly
(from: Independent Political Report @ August 26, 2014, 11:24 PM)

Alex Fidel is running as an Independent for mayor of Encinitas, which is a coastal town north of San Diego. In this writer’s opinion, this is someone to keep an eye on. He was one of the two young men who worked very hard with Christina Tobin of Free and Equal to put on the United We Stand festival in May of this year.… Read more ...

6:15 PM PT: OK-05: The AP has called this for former state Sen. Russell, who leads 59-41. Unlike with Saddam Hussein, he didn't need to go into a spider-hole to capture the Republican nomination. Russell will be the heavy favorite in November.

6:18 PM PT: Polls close in Arizona at 10 PM ET and we'll be back then. The Arizona portion of the night has a lot to watch and we'll be back here to cover it!

7:01 PM PT: Polls have closed in Arizona. We'll be bringing you the results as they come in.

7:10 PM PT: AZ-Gov: Well, one group isn't waiting for the primary results to come in before moving on to the general. On behalf of Arizona Progress, PPP finds Democrat Fred DuVal ties with Republican state Treasurer Doug Ducey 35-35. Polls indicate Ducey is the favorite to emerge from the GOP primary tonight, but given how unpredictable Republican primaries have been this year we won't know for sure until results start to roll in.

7:47 PM PT: Arizona vote delays are unfortunately nothing new. In the 2012 liveblog we got our first results at 8:15 PM PT, an hour and fifteen minutes after the polls closed. Doesn't mean it will take that long again, but worth keeping in mind.

8:07 PM PT: AZ-Gov: We have votes!!!!!! Via Maricopa County (the dominant county in the state), Treasurer Doug Ducey leads former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith 35-26. About 200,000 early votes are in.

8:10 PM PT: AZ-07: In the Democratic primary in this safely blue seat, state Rep. Ruben Gallego (whom Daily Kos endorsed) leads former Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox 48-37. 21,000 early votes are in.

8:12 PM PT: AZ-AG: Ouch. Scandal-tarred Republican Attorney General Tom Horne is losing renomination 61-39 to Mark Brnovich in Maricopa County.

8:13 PM PT: AZ-09: In the GOP primary for this light blue seat, veteran Wendy Rogers is beating former ASU football great Andrew Walter 58-42, with 30,000 votes in.

8:20 PM PT: AZ-01: Via the Secretary of State, we have a tight race in the GOP primary here. Speaker Andy Tobin, the establishment favorite, leads rancher Gary Kiehne 38-35. Local idiot and state Rep. Adam Kwasman is at 27.

8:30 PM PT: AZ-Gov: Getting some election day votes in for Maricopa, and Ducey still leads Scott 35-26 in the county. Maricopa is massive, and it's hard to win statewide if you're getting killed there.

8:32 PM PT: AZ-01: Things are even closer here than before. Tobin leads Kiehne 35-33, with Kwasman at 31. Looks like we have the most suspenseful race of the night.

8:33 PM PT (David Nir): The liveblog continues here.

5:02 PM PT: FL-AG: 470,000 votes in statewide and the Democratic primary looks just as over as it did before. Sheldon leads Thurston 62-38 for the right to take on GOP incumbent Pam Bondi. The general will be tough: Bondi isn't too well known but is a great fundraiser, while Sheldon isn't.

5:03 PM PT: FL-Gov: No surprise, but the AP just called this for Charlie Crist.
