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.
4TH RESULT: state Sen. Simcha Felder has won the Democratic primary in #SD17. Felder caucuses with the GOP; he didn't even bother being part of the IDC. In fact, Felder is the reason the GOP currently has a majority in the NY Senate.
5TH RESULT: Alessandra Biaggi *defeats* state Sen. Jeff Klein. Klein led the IDC, the group that allied with the GOP. (Called by NY1).

2nd IDC incumbent to lose a primary tonight (🚨)—and, again, the IDC's leader.
6TH RESULT: Zellnor Myrie has defeated state Sen. Jesse Hamilton. Hamilton was part of the IDC, the group that allied with the GOP.

Third IDC senator to be ousted in a primary tonight. 🚨
7TH RESULT: Rachel May has won against state Senator David Valesky in #SD53 (Syracuse area). Valesky was a member of the IDC, allied with GOP.

Fourth IDC senator ousted tonight (🚨), the first outside of NYC.
8TH RESULT: Jessica Ramos has ousted state Sen. Jose Peralta in #SD13. Peralta was a member of IDC, which allied with GOP. [corrected]

He's the fifth IDC senator ousted tonight (🚨)—and still likely not the last.
9th RESULT: state Sen. David Carlucci wins in #SD38 against challenger Julie Goldberg. Carlucci was an IDC member. In fact, he's one of only 2 IDC incumbents to win their Dem primary today.
10TH (& final) RESULT: John Liu defeats state Sen. Tony Avella in #SD10. Liu is NYC's former comptroller. Avella was a member of IDC, which allied with GOP.

The sixth (6th!) IDC senator ousted tonight. 🚨 6 of the 8 IDCers lost.
