The primary elections results came in across seven states with one pretty big upset.

Incumbent governor Henry McMaster won the GOP primary in South Carolina.

President Trump traveled there to rally support for him earlier this week.

In Utah, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney won the Republican primary to replace retiring senator Orrin Hatch.

Republican congressman Dan Donovan rode the support of President Trump to a victory over Michael Grimm in New York.

But in an upset that could send ripples throughout the Democratic Party, 28-year old socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat 10-term New York congressmen Joseph Crowley.

In Maryland, former NAACP president Ben Jealous won the Democratic nomination for governor.

He’s hoping to become the state’s first black governor.
