Today effectively marks the end of the primary election season and the true beginning of the general elections. It’s not only one of the last primary days but one of the biggest, including Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Wisconsin. [Ed. note: Jon will be liveblogging results all night. Delaware polls close at 8pm EDT, with a number of others closing at 9. Look for results and reaction at FDL's Elections page.]

Today was a busy day in the New York Senate race even if you didn’t talk about Kirsten Gillibrand and Harold Ford. Left-wing Democratic candidate Jonathan Tasini launched a campaign to end the filibuster, and both of the top Republican recruits for the race – Rep. Peter King and former Rep. Susan Molinari – dropped out of consideration for the race.
With Gillibrand and Ford included, the day was, in a word, hectic. It started early, with Harold Ford dropping a bombshell – he now supports same-sex marriage.

New York has only an appointed senator at the moment, Kirsten Gillibrand, filling in for Hillary Clinton who left to become Secretary of State. This is a terrific opportunity to elect a new leader, and I can’t imagine anyone better than Jonathan Tasini to place in the United States Senate, an institution — if ever there was one — in need of shaking up, rattling about, hosing down, and radically redirecting.

Blue America is going to be working to get single payer candidates on the ballot in every Congressional district across the country. And no, those who cosponsored 676 when it didn’t matter and then vote to pass an abhorrent “compromise” don’t count.
