    June 24 Primaries: Tea Party Hopes For Big Victory In Mississippi

    WASHINGTON -- The tea party is getting its best chance to knock off a sitting senator on Tuesday, when Chris McDaniel faces Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) in the state's GOP primary runoff contest.Voters are heading to the polls in Colorado, Maryland, New York, Oklahoma and Utah, with primary runoff elections happening in Mississippi and South Carolina.
    The tea party could also pull off an upset in New York's 22nd congressional district, where activists are hoping to unseat Rep. Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.), who is known as one of the more moderate members of the GOP caucus.
    On the Democratic side, one of the biggest races will be in the blue state of Maryland, where candidates are trotting out their progressive credentials and putting forward policy proposals to create universal prekindergarten classes and legalize marijuana. Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) is also facing a challenge from the left, fending off attacks that he's been too friendly to Wall Street.
    Here's a look at the key races The Huffington Post is watching:
