(CNN) - Tuesday is primary day in eight states.

One in particular is capturing the nation's attention.

In Mississippi, 36-year Senate veteran Thad Cochran is defending his seat in a neck-and-neck race with tea-party-backed candidate Chris McDaniel's.

And both candidates are proving to be "mudders,"  slinging angry accusations at one another.

Polls will also be open in Alabama, California, Iowa, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota.
