Seems there’s some voting going on in a couple states today. Here’s a thread for discussion when the results start coming in. I’ll be out tonight for a bit and probably unable to update the post for a while.

Polls close in S.C. at 7 p.m. ET and the caucuses end at 11 p.m. ET in Nevada. As always, place your bets!

Hillary Clinton is in Las Vegas rallying last-minute support while hanging around the casinos. Why? Because that’s where the money is.

One potentially awkward moment was narrowly averted: While being given a tour of the MGM Grand, Hillary was taken into the soft count room when she instinctively broke into her stock Goldman Sachs speech before being cut short by an aide and quickly led away.

Update: It’s already been mentioned, but Trump won S.C., with Rubio and Cruz nearly tied for 2nd and 3rd. Nevada was called for Hillary Clinton. And Jeb Bush is suspending the family dynasty.

Update II:

On the Dem side, Donna Brazile resorted to pointing out that the audience at a Marco Rubio rally was so lacking in diversity that it resembled the entire field of Democrat presidential hopefuls:

I’m no expert, but that’s probably an ill-advised angle of attack.
