One candidate who's not sweating the elections tonight is Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who's running unopposed in Arizona's Democratic primary for Senate.

The Florida Senate race will be a closely watched competition between incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Both are running unopposed in their primaries.
