Well, that was fast. We're calling the race for Murphy, who is leading in every county.

Our first results, from Gloucester County, not surprisingly, have Murphy crushing it.

Race Preview

Unlike the Virginia Gubernatorial primary a week from today, the Democratic race in the Garden State has been effectively over for a long time: Phil Murphy has been the clear front runner and has spent eight figures so far on his run, crushing everyone else in air time and spending. There was some early expectation of a contest from John Wisniewski, who chaired Bernie Sanders’ campaign here last year. But Sanders never endorsed in this contest, and Murphy has vacuumed up nearly every necessary endorsement for a comfortable win today. Polls close at 8pm EDT.
