FIRST RESULT: Julia Salazar, who was backed by DSA, wins against state Sen. Martin Dilan. It wasn't close. (@AP has called it.)
2ND RESULT: Robert Jackson defeats state Sen. Marisol Alcantara in in #SD31. Alcantara was a member of the IDC, which allied with the GOP.

First IDC incumbent to lose a primary tonight (🚨), and likely not the last.
3RD RESULT: state Sen. Diane Savino wins the Dem nomination in #SD23. Savino was a member of the IDC.

First IDC incumbent to *win* a primary tonight. In fact, she's likely to be the IDCer who wins by largest margin.
