By Alex Weprin 

Tomorrow, May 18 will see a number of key statewide Republican and Democratic primaries, including elections in Pennsylvania, Arkansas and Kentucky. When there is politics involved, you can bet the cable newsers will be all over it.

Likewise “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” and “The Rachel Maddow Show” will be live during their regular time periods, as well as at 10 and 11 p.m., when their reruns typically air.

CNN has Candy Crowley in Pennsylvania, Dana Bash in Arkansas and Jessica yellin in Kentucky to cover the races there. In its Washington DC studio Wolf Blitzer will be on air all day long, with Gloria Borger providing political analysis and John King working the magic wall to break down the results county by county.

Fox News has Carl Cameron in Philadelphia, Shannon Bream in Arkansas and Steve Brown in Kentucky. “Hannity” and “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” will be live, with Bret Baier reading the election results.
