    Primary elections: Seven states to watch

    Democrats will be watching the Republican contests closely, hoping for additional upsets by tea party-backed candidates. Democrats hope the Republicans will be saddled with unelectable candidates.

The competition between traditional Republicans and their tea party counterparts is particularly strong in Delaware, New Hampshire, and New York. Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and Maryland also hold primaries Tuesday.
