Election Roundup: Marquee Primary Results Are In

Now, no one’s surprised that Bobo won her primary:

The AP has called the GOP primary in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District for Rep. Lauren Boebert. As of 8:45 p.m. she had 43 percent of the vote, while none of the other five candidates had more than 15 percent.

These results mean Boebert will be a Republican candidate for Congress for a third time, this time representing a new part of the state.

Boebert is currently the congresswoman for the 3rd Congressional District, covering the Western Slope and southern Colorado. But she recently moved to the eastern side of the state and is now running in the 4th Congressional District.

In NY-16:

Progressive Rep. Jaamal Bowman, D-N.Y., suffered a primary defeat Tuesday to a moderate challenger who was backed by pro-Israel groups, NBC News projected, following a bitter and expensive race that exposed the party’s divisions over the war in Gaza.

The race between Bowman and Westchester County Executive George Latimer in New York’s 16th District drew more ad spending — $25 million, according to the ad tracking firm AdImpact — than any other House primary in history. Nearly $15 million of that spending came from the United Democracy Project, a super PAC linked to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a powerful pro-Israel lobby, which backed Latimer.

With 68% of the vote in, Latimer led Bowman by a wide margin, 55.7% to 44.3%.

AOC won the nomination for NY-14 with 81.79% of the Democratic vote.

And former CNN anchor John Avlon won the Democratic primary in NY-1. Avlon is smart and has integrity — he would be a great addition to the Democratic caucus if he wins in the general election.
