While tonight's Primaries are still fresh in everyone's mind, I thought would run a quick comparison to another June Primary - June 1976. The race was between Jimmy Carter and Gov. Gerry Brown on the Democratic side and Ronald Reagan and President Ford on the Republican side.

Here is a 90 minute snapshot of Primary Night, Tuesday June 8, 1976 as reported locally in Los Angeles by CBS Radio affiliate KNX-AM with returns from Primaries all over the country.

Still a horse race. Still down to counting ballots. Still confounding the polls, thirty-six years later.
