Paul Wins in K -Specter Defeated in PA - Dems Hold Murtha's Seat - Blanche Lincoln Forced To Run-Off UPDATED!

Do you thing that GOP officials are listening yet?
Tea Party favorite Rand Paul is leading Secretary of State Trey Grayson in Tuesday's GOP Senate primary in Kentucky, with an eye toward giving the anti-big government movement its most significant political victory yet.
The Kentucky primary is one of several high-stakes Senate races in three states that political analysts are closely watching to determine the mood of the country's electorate less than five months before November's elections in which Republicans will seek to regain control of both houses in Congress.
Congrats to Paul!

Joe Sestek Defeats Arlen Specter in PA.

Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter's political future is now up in the air Tuesday night as the polls closed and the vote count points to Rep. Joe Sestak's victory in the Democratic primary.
Sestak is set to send Specter, an 80-year-old, five-term senator, into retirement with a stunning come-from-behind victory. Specter is trying to save his after turning traitor in the Republican party last year, seeing a switch in parties as an easier path to re-election.  
Sucks to be you, Arlen!
In the Pennsylvania race to fill the late Jack Murtha's congressional seat, Tim Burns has conceded the race to the Democrat Mark Critz.  

Blanche Lincoln holding on for her runoff life....

Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln failed to win the majority of votes in the Democratic primary Tuesday and now faces a three-week fight with Lt. Gov. Bill Halter for her party's nomination.
Already one of the most vulnerable incumbents seeking re-election this year, Lincoln will run against Halter alone in a June 8 runoff. A third candidate, Little Rock businessman D.C. Morrison, drew enough votes Tuesday to force the extra campaign but will not progress.
Lincoln had said she would be ecstatic with either a runoff or a clear-cut victory, but Halter has said forcing overtime would be close to a win.
With just over half the state's 2,516 precincts reporting, Lincoln had received 44 percent of the vote to 42 percent for Halter.
