NH GOV: With 93 percent of precincts reporting, former state Sen. Molly Kelly (D) won the Democratic nomination over former Portsmouth Mayor Steve Marchand (D), receiving 66 percent of the vote. She will face Gov. Chris Sununu (R), who was unopposed. (New York Times)

Kelly: “Tonight we can celebrate. Tomorrow we take on Chris Sununu. It is time that New Hampshire once again had a governor who put the people first, and I will be that governor.” (Laconia Daily Sun)

NY GOV: Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) “and the New York State Democratic Party both acknowledge the existence of a false piece of campaign material that wrongly implied that his primary opponent,” actress Cynthia Nixon (D), “was anti-Semitic. They say it went to 7,000 households, and cost about $11,000. And they both say it was wrong. … On Tuesday, the Cuomo campaign released a bit more about the mailer’s origins, identifying the creator only as ‘an individual helping the campaign on constituency outreach.’”

Campaign spokeswoman Abbey Collins: “In the future, constituency representatives will not be allowed to draft or participate in the mail program. Moving forward, the state party executive director and lawyer must sign off on each piece.” (New York Times)

RI GOV: Polls close at 8 p.m. Gov. Gina Raimondo (D) and former Secretary of State Matt Brown (D) will face of in the Democratic primary, while Cranston Mayor Allan Fung (R) is expected to win his primary handily. Results can be found here.
