Today on the Eye on NY podcast:
- A recap of the New York primary elections Thursday. It was a big night for the Democratic establishment in statewide races, but progressives picked up key wins in state legislative primaries.
- A breakdown of the unofficial results (as of Friday morning) and how each candidate in a statewide primary performed. Gov. Andrew Cuomo won the Democratic primary over Cynthia Nixon. Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul rebounded after an early deficit and defeated New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams. And in the four-way primary for attorney general, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James won the Democratic nomination. Zephyr Teachout was the runner-up.
- I'll also share the latest on the 53rd Senate District race. Rachel May challenged state Sen. David Valesky, a former member of the Independent Democratic Conference, for the Democratic nod. She holds a 606-vote lead after the election night tally. There are more than 900 absentees that have been returned.
