It's an open thread for the Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island Primaries, known as the "Acela Primary" because all the states lie in the path of the New York to DC express train.

All polls close at 8 pm Eastern. Expect a lot of results all at once.

We'll also be watching the results of the Maryland Democratic Senate Primary. Blue America has endorsed Donna Edwards in that race.
