Primary Day Open Thread
June 26, 2018

Earliest poll closings are of course on the East Coast, Maryland at 8pm and New York at 9pm local time.

We'll be updating this post as returns come in... Let us know how your local races fare in comments, and thanks!

Update 1:

Nancy Pelosi's so-called replacement, Joe Crowley, lost to Blue America candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Trump, of course, is taking credit because he's Trump, but really, the women are coming for Donald Trump and will be carried into the Capitol on a Big Blue Wave.

Ben Jealous won the Democratic nomination for Maryland governor. and Ben Cardin won his primary for Senator.

Convicted felon Michael Grimm lost in New York. By a lot.

I'll post more as I get them.
