Populist uprising runs aground in New Jersey primary

Where were the Berniecrats? What about the populist uprising in the Republican ranks?

The anti-establishment mood that has taken hold in much of the country was nowhere to be seen in New Jersey on Tuesday night, when a former Goldman Sachs executive and the state’s current lieutenant governor easily prevailed in their respective primaries.

New Jersey Democrats were unbothered by the gilded resume of Phil Murphy, who made millions as a managing director at Goldman Sachs, delivering him 48 percent of the vote in a six-person race.

Kim Guadagno, a Republican who has served under Gov. Chris Christie for the last seven and a half years, did nearly as well in the GOP primary, winning 47 percent of the vote, to beat her nearest challenger by 16 points.
