5:56 p.m. Last polls close in Arizona at 8:00 p.m. CST. The Democrats will allocate 37 of its 67 convention delegates from the primary today: 37 delegates are allocated in proportion to the primary votes while an additional 12 at-large delegates and seven pledged party-leader and elected official delegates are allocated based on the statewide vote.

Republicans will allocate all 53 of its convention delegates today based on the candidate with the most votes statewide.

8:22 p.m. Surprisingly, no network has been able to call Arizona for its own Senator, John McCain. Exit polling shows a very large percentage of Republicans want illegal aliens deported, and 49 percent of them voted for Mitt Romney.

9:33 p.m. Fox News project John McCain the winner of Arizona.

10:15 p.m. NBC News has called the Arizona primary for Hillary Clinton.

  • People are not able to determine which is the best party among both. So they have no option other than bringing the third party to existence. But all CNN is talking about how well Hillary is doing.

    Mary Burke: English First?

    While multiculturalism and bilingualism are increasingly en vogue in some quarters as the world seemingly becomes a smaller place, one very high profile 2014 Democratic candidate does not shy away from the fact that she only speaks one language: English. In an attempt to highlight her private sector credentials working for Trek Bicycle, Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial nominee Mary Burke boasts on her campaign bio page how she made great strides in international business dealings...while only speaking English: "Despite not speaking a single foreign language, she established sales and distribution operations in seven countries over just three years." Note: According to 2010 Census data, nearly half a million Wisconsinites over five years old speak a language other than English at home, or 8.7 percent, while 4.6 percent of Badger State residents do not speak English at all.


    Does My Key Still Work?

    Much has been made about Charlie Crist's political transformation from Republican to independent to Democrat en route to winning the Florida GOP and Democratic gubernatorial nominations over a span of eight years. Party-switching aside, Crist is also vying to become just the second Florida governor to serve two interrupted terms. Democrat William Bloxham was the first - serving four year terms from 1881 to 1885 and then 1897 to 1901. Florida did not permit governors serving consecutive terms for most of its 123 years prior to changes made in its 1968 constitution. Since then four have done so: Democrats Reubin Askew, Bob Graham, and Lawton Chiles and Republican Jeb Bush.
