Progressive candidate concedes in New York City Democratic primary

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Democratic primary race for Queens district attorney finally came to end an end on Tuesday with political newcomer Tiffany Cabán, a progressive backed by U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, conceding victory to Melinda Katz, the establishment favorite candidate.

Cabán, a queer Latino, declared victory on election night in June, but since then, the two candidates had been battling over absentee ballots in a weeks-long recount ending in Katz’s favor. Last week, the New York City Board of Elections certified that Cabán lost by several dozen votes, but until now, the 31-year-old had yet to concede victory.

Connecticut Primary Wrap Up: Elicker Bests Harp In New Haven Upset

Former New Haven alder Justin Elicker pulled off a huge upset in that city's Democratic mayoral primary, ousting incumbent Mayor Toni Harp. It was a rematch for the two. Six years ago it was Harp who bested Elicker to lead the city. This time, the challenger won a comfortable victory, with an unofficial total of 6,825 machine votes to 4,841.

Harp has not confirmed whether she will consider a run against Elicker in the general election in November. She would have the opportunity to get on the ballot as a Working Families Party candidate.

Boston Primary Election 2019: Results

BOSTON — The polls closed and the unofficial results are in. There were 15 hopefuls — including four incumbents — eyeing a chance at one of four city-wide seats on the Boston City Council. Now there are eight. Voters in districts 5, 7, 8 and 9 also helped winnow the field for city councilors to two. Now that the voters - some 137,180 people - have decided who will be on the November ballot, the remaining candidates will likely kick their campaign efforts into overdrive.

If the primaries are any indicator, Michelle Wu and Michael Flaherty and Annissa Essaibi George look set to keep their at-large seats - or at least stay on the ballot for the November election. But who will snag that fourth slot? Julia Mejia edged incumbent Althea Garrison out of the fourth place in the preliminary. Alejandra Nicole Stguillen, Erin J. Murphy and David Halbert are the eight to secure spots on the November ballot.

LA-Gov: Trailing In The Polls, Desperate GOPer Files Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From House

With just three days remaining before the Saturday election for the governorship of Louisiana, Republican candidate and House representative Ralph Abraham is pulling out the symbolic, Trump-friendly gestures in order to rally the base to vote out Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards. On Tuesday, the congressman for northeastern Louisiana’s fifth district filed a resolution to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House, citing a clause in the Constitution which allows lawmakers to “punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member.”

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham’s statement read, borrowing its tone from that of the president. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain. House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020.”
