Tuesday’s Primary Results: MAGAts Did Not Do So Well; Jamaal Bowman Defeated

Other than Lauren Bobert, MAGAts did not do so well in Tuesday's primaries.

On Tuesday,  Colorado, New York, Utah, and parts of South Carolina picked their party’s nominees for this fall’s elections.

In the most expensive U.S. primary in history:

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.), a progressive firebrand and outspoken advocate for Palestinians’ rights, lost his Democratic primary on Tuesday, marking the first defeat of an incumbent member of the ultraliberal “Squad” and a major setback for the country’s once-ascendant activist left.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer, 70, defeated Bowman, 48, in New York’s 16th Congressional District, which encompasses the lower half of suburban Westchester County and a sliver of the northeastern Bronx. Latimer, a 35-year veteran of Westchester politics, is all but assured a seat in Congress come November since the solid Democratic seat is not competitive in the general election.

“Rumor has it,” this guy ^^^ has the makings of being another Joe Manchin.

She Actually ‘Thinks’ She Represents the Entire Country:

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio Cortez trounced her opponent, Martin Dolan, in NY-14, amassing over 82% of the vote with 90% of the vote in.

Other Results:

  • Former CNN commentator, John Avlon, won the Democratic primary in NY’s 1st Congressional District. Avlon will now take on Republican Nick LaLota in the swing Long Island district.
  • New York State Senator, Democrat John Mannion won his primary and will face Rep. Brandon Williams in the general election. Williams is one of the House’s most vulnerable Republicans – and Democrats are hoping to secure a flip come fall.
  • Republican Jeff Hurd won his competitive primary in Lauren Boebert’s former district of CO-03, defeating his election-denier opponent, former state Rep. Ron Hanks. Hurd will face Adam Frisch, the Democrat who came up just short against Lauren Boebert in the 2022 congressional elections.

The ‘Stable Genius’ Weighs in:

It was also a bad night for The Felon Guy. Going into these primaries, only one candidate he had endorsed for Senate, House or governor had lost; tonight alone, three did, including his preferred candidate to replace retiring Sen. Mitt Romney in Utah.

  • Utah gives The Felon Guy a big FU: John Curtis was declared the victor on the Republican ticket, defeating the Trump-backed Trent Staggs by a wide margin. Curtis will face off in the fall against Democrat Caroline Gleich to fill the seat that will be left vacant by Republican Mitt Romney.
  • In South Carolina, Sheri Biggs won the Republican primary runoff for the 3rd District, taking down Trump-backed candidate, Mark Burns.

Put simply, it was one of Trump’s worst primary nights yet in terms of his endorsements – possibly ever.
