Jamaal Bowman on historic primary victory

Official results for New York's primary elections lagged for weeks because of delays in counting absentee ballots. Jamaal Bowman didn't have to wait long to celebrate though, given his dominant victory over House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel in the Democratic primary for New York's 16th Congressional District. Bowman joined CBSN to talk about voting rights, schools and what he plans to do as a progressive in Congress.

Partial results are in for Tuesday's primary elections in New York, Kentucky and Virginia. With a record number of absentee ballots cast, it could be days until the winners are announced. Early numbers show progressive Democrats making gains against members of the party establishment. CBSN political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns and director of the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues at the University of Kentucky Al Cross join Red and Blue's Elaine Quijano to break down the results.
