A Sarah-Palin backed Tea Party candidate snags a primary win in Nebraska, and two women come up big in West Virginia.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland has more on Tuesday night's primary action in this report from America's Election Headquarters:

West Virginia is doing something it has never done before, sending a woman to the U.S. Senate. Voters just have to pick which one-- Republican Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito:

Capito ad: "To be perfectly honest, I haven't made everyone in Washington..."

Or Democrat Natalie Tennant:

Tennant ad: " West Virginians deserve to have leadership and vision..."

One of them will replace the retiring Senator Jay Rockefeller. With Capito's seat empty, there was a GOP primary in the 2nd District -- and former Maryland state legislator Alex Mooney won that. He'll face Democrat Nick Casey in November. In Nebraska, it was the Tea Party's night, as Midland University President Ben Sasse won the GOP primary for U.S. Senate. It was a cut-throat race with plenty of mudslinging and attack ads:

Sasse will take on Democrat David Domina in the fall, in Nebraska.
