Thanks to some stragglers in the statewide and Pima County election counting offices, we're still waiting on the final count from yesterday's primary election, but many of the races are all but wrapped up by this point. If you are just waking up, here's what happened in the big races:

-John McCain handily trounced opponent J.D. Hayworth in the Republican primary for senate, with the Politician Formerly Known As The Maverick grabbing more than half the vote.

-Rodney Glassman edged out his Democratic challengers for the senate primary, getting more than a third of the vote.

-David Lujan and Felicia Rotinelli are neck and neck in the attorney general race on the Dem side, as are Tom Horne and Andrew Thomas on the Republican side. It's going to be a while before anyone can call this one.

-Jesse Kelly will likely beat out Jonathan Paton in the CD8 race to face incumbent Gabrielle Giffords.

-Democrat Chris Deschene is handily ahead in the secretary of state race. He'll face Ken Bennett in the general election.

-It looks to be a John Huppenthal vs. Penny Kotterman contest for Superintendent of Public Instruction.

-Doug Ducey is the likely winner on the Republican side for state treasurer. Democrat Andrei Cherney ran unopposed on the Democratic side.

If you're curious, here's how the numbers are shaping up so far (this represents 415 of 417 Pima County precincts reporting and only 2 of the 15 Arizona counties fully reporting):
