Five takeaways from races in Colorado, Illinois, New York and more

Tuesday’s primaries and runoffs saw the downfall of at least three House incumbents, as well as the limits of top Republicans and Democrats to sway the results of key primary races.


In Colorado, more moderate Republicans beat out candidates who cast themselves as staunch allies of former President Donald Trump in a handful of statewide GOP primaries, though the former president still managed to notch crucial victories in Illinois.


Meanwhile, establishment Democrats in New York cruised to victory over progressive challengers.
