NY1 has all the results from last night's Democratic primary. If you missed our coverage, you can read our tweets from various election parties on the right side of this page. And we'll have more from several Bronx races later today, but until then, here are some highlights:
- The biggest story of the night: Gustavo Rivera beat out incumbent Pedro Espada by a pretty significant margin. We'll post more on both candidates' events last night in a bit. For more, see here, here, and here, and pretty much everywhere else. Hiram Monserrate, the former Queens senator who helped Espada stage the Senate coup last year and who has faced his own share of legal troubles, also lost last night in his bid for State Assembly.
- Besides Espada, every other Bronx incumbent in the Senate and Assembly who faced a primary challenge came out victorious.
- Sen. Eric Schneiderman, whose district includes parts of Riverdale, will head into November's election as the Democratic candidate for Attorney General. He was one of five candidates vying for the spot, and just barely defeated candidate Kathleen Rice.
