Primary Day

Five states -- Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Oklahoma and Vermont -- go to the polls today "but only three of them can point to primary elections that are being closely monitored by a national audience," Politico reports.

"In Alaska and Arizona, Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and John McCain (R-AZ) face vigorous challenges from the right. In Florida, the open Senate and gubernatorial contests have attracted self-funding outsider candidates whose free-spending candidacies are testing the resolve of each party's political establishment."

However, there's also an interesting and competitive race in Vermont where five Democrats are battling for their party's nomination to face Brian Dubie (R) in the fall election.

Polls close in Florida and Vermont at 7 pm ET, in Arizona at 9 pm ET, in Oklahoma at 8 pm ET, in Arizona at 9 pm ET and in Alaska at 12 am ET.
