Here are the current “very competitive” races with progressive candidates by @PrimaryCast

Note that not all of the progressive candidates currently running are included in this map (yet) and the percents are a lot lower than the expected vote share. Allen Ellison (@AllenLEllison) leads the Florida Primary.

Erica Smith (@EricaforUSSen) is running a very competitive race in North Carolina.

Meanwhile Jason Call (@CallForCongress) and Mark Gamba (@mark_gamba) are both very competitive primary challengers.

Final Results for #LA02

Gary Chambers lost by 1.6% (around 1500 votes)

First of all, tremendous props to Gary and his team for running a real progressive campaign and way over performing polls and the expectations of most of the pundits. Second of all, this was a defeat for progressives and the race will now be between a conservative Democrat and a corporate lobbyist who has a record of now showing up for her constituents.

Putting the rest of the results and commentary into this thread so bookmark it if you’d like :)

The two parishes with the largest percent of votes in are accession and assumption which are in between the two major cities and have more rural/conservative voters. Gary has 24% of the vote in East Baton Rouge which will have a lot more results coming. He is also second in Iberville with 23%

Why last night was a win for progressives;

While there are small number of ballot waiting to be counted from last night’s elections, we have a lot of them and, as usual, I’d like to reflect on our wins and losses.

(I’ll include thread reader bot at the end) While at first glance last night may look like a blowout for progressives I do not believe that to be the case, in fact I believe that in many ways we won last night.

Let’s start with Vermont where voters across the state participated in the annual Town Meeting Day.

With votes mostly from wards 1, 4, 6, and 7 Democrat Miro Weinberger has a 3% (~350 vote) lead over progressive Max Tracy with independent Ali Dieng trailing with 14% of the vote. Congratulations to progressive @JackHansonBTV who will be re-elected to the Burlington City Council. Hanson ran unopposed and will receive another term.

The North District race is nearly tied and incumbent Perri Freeman is leading 67-28 in the Central District

Today, March 2nd, there are election all over the country. These include primaries and general elections for municipal offices, as well as multiple state legislative special elections.

This thread will contain the candidates we’re endorsing. First, we’d like to reiterate our support for @progparty candidate Max Tracy to be the next mayor of Burlington (Vermont). Max is a dedicated progressive organiser fighting for better housing, a cleaner city, and racial justice.

Now that we have the majority of the results from last night’s primaries, what are the next race progressive are looking at?

On August 18 there will be primaries in Alaska, Florida, and Wyoming. While these states are fairly red they are interesting and we could get some wins. Note: These are just congressional candidates (there could be many state candidates who are not included).

Alaska this year has gone from a “Safe GOP” state to “Lean GOP” across the board, meaning it’s going to be pretty competitive.
