Five states are holding primaries tonight, while Kansas will vote on an amendment to remove the right to an abortion from the state constitution. Ohio voters will also go back to the polls for primaries for their state legislature, which were delayed because of redistricting litigation (primaries for the Buckeye State’s other offices took place as planned in early May).

We’ll be liveblogging the results here and also covering the returns closely on Twitter.

We’re now working through the fourth hour of this primary night liveblog. If you’ve been enjoying a summer evening wherever you are, let’s get you caught up:

  • Kansas: The highlight of the night for progressives, undoubtedly, has been the stark repudiation by the voters of Kansas of a measure that would’ve empowered the heavily Republican state legislature to regulate abortion. The NO vote has a 61-39 margin with a relatively small amount of the vote left to count.
  • MI-Gov: As polls indicated, talk show host Tudor Dixon has won the Republican primary and will face off with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer this November.
  • MO-Sen: We now have our matchup for November in this open seat race, as Republicans have nominated state attorney general Eric Schmitt, and Democrats (in just the last few moments) have nominated businesswoman Trudy Busch Valentine.
