Another tale of an affluent MN suburb moving left in the Trump era: #SD53. Obama +4.7 to Clinton +12.5 to Biden +21.5. Went from being ~3 points to the right of the state in 2012 to over 14 points to the left in 2020.
#SD53 was considerably wider in 2020 than 2016, but still ran well behind the top of the ticket.
In all but Oakdale P-1 and Landfall did Biden run ahead of Kent. The GOP ran a former Mayor of Woodbury which makes up a lot of the district and probably helped narrow at least part of the margin.

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.
