#NY16 Dem Primary Results (Nearly 30% In)
Engel (-Inc) 36%
BREAKING: Jamaal Bowman beats establishment candidate Eliot Engel in +25 point upset making the Bronx one of the most progressive counties in the nation
At this point, I'd be massively surprised if Jamaal Bowman (D) doesn't beat #NY16 Rep. Eliot Engel (D).
Looks like Engel, who was famously absent from own district as the COVID crisis unfolded, won't be compelled to visit at all going forward. 😋
So excited my mom got a chance to vote for Bowman today . https://t.co/2csYJDHOXz
Thinking about how the Congressional Black Caucus endorsed Engel
#NY16 House Primary Early Results:
2018 - Crowley
2020 - Engel
2022 - Schumer?
Hillary, Pelosi, and Schumer all backed Engel the Incumbent making this even sweeter. Thank you New York. https://t.co/5UwHeWs8xi
This is incredible. Engel was endorsed by everyone in the establishment—they even trotted out Hillary Clinton's dusty ass—and Engel still went down! FUCK yes. https://t.co/J4StJcX1US
Congratulations to whichever grotesque lobbying firm is about to add Eliot Engel to its roster of consultants
Watching the entire Democratic establishment—including the Congressional Black Caucus!—back the white, losing Eliot Engel & not the wonderful winner, Jamaal Bowman, reinforces how out of touch the DNC is. It doesn’t know what ppl want or how to win. It’s not an opposition party! https://t.co/hOrqH9n1Gr
#NY16 update: Jamaal Bowman (D)'s lead over Rep. Eliot Engel (D) now up to 62%-36% w/ 8,300 votes counted. All of that is from the Bronx (about 2/3 of district's vote comes from Westchester).
If Engel goes down, it's not just Israel, Saudi, & GOP who are losing a major ally. It's also all the Woke Syria Regime Changers: Engel is one of the leading Congressional backers of the Syria proxy war & of the Caesar sanctions inflicting new misery on Syrian civilians.
Eliot Engel leaves Congress with full pension and healthcare for LIFE. All workers deserve this when they leave their jobs after 30 years.
So New York didn’t only choose Jamaal Bowman over Eliot Engel tonight.
It also elected Ritchie Torres, who will go on to be the first openly gay Afro-Latinx man in Congress.
AND Mondaire Jones, the first openly gay Black man in Congress.
History is being made.
If Jamaal Bowman defeats Eliot Engel, it will be a shattering loss for the Democratic Party establishment. They threw everything at him:
- $5 million in dark money smear ads
- Endorsements from Hillary Clinton, Andrew Cuomo and Chuck Schumer
And he still won. https://t.co/yB2jzlV9z5
already writing her monologue on how Putin took out Eliot Engel
#NY16 Dem Primary Results (91.5% In)
Engel (-Inc) 35.6%
Maybe now Eliot Engel will have time to visit #NY16
Eliot Engel reminds me of this guy I know who is a fucking massive loser
The whole party machine circled the wagons around Engel for him to get 35% lmao hell yeah
I want to hear Schumer and Pelosi explain why they thought going all in for Engel was good for, say, people. Or the Party.
Kongresmen Eliot Engel który niedawno sprzeciwiał się wizycie prezydenta @AndrzejDuda
w USA (wywołując tym wielkie podniecenie w mediach typu TVN czy GW) przegrał właśnie prawybory Partii Demokratycznej i nie będzie już startował do Kongresu. Ups😂 https://t.co/hRirty2irj
Two years after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's breakthrough, the New York Democratic establishment suffered another shock last night – as socialist Jamaal Bowman defeated incumbent congressman Elliot Engel in the city's 16th district. https://t.co/tJ2avjGSCY
Engel and McGrath were corporate Hillary Dems.
Bowman and Booker are new leaders of the Sanders and AOC wing of the party.
Such a happy day!
It looks like sitting House Democrat Rep Eliot Engel will lose his primary to a man they are calling the male AOC.
An AOC level upset is brewing in the Bronx and Westchester as Eliot Engel is losing bigly to Jamaal Bowman. It will take a while to tally all the results, though.
Y'all — if you thought ELIOT ENGEL was bad, I'd like to introduce you to JOSH GOTTHEIMER.
He's one of the most conservative Dems. Voted with Trump more than any other Dem Rep or Senator in 2018 (77% of the time). Blocked amendments to improve conditions for children in cages.
Watch this clip and remind yourself that this is who Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo rejected, instead endorsing Eliot Engel who fought against Obama’s Iran deal and took GOP money. https://t.co/t8vixwH0Em
