2021 New Jersey primary results

    Will New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy become the first Democrat reelected to that office since the 1970s? He has no primary challenger, while Republicans will pick their nominee Tuesday. Former state legislator Jack Ciattarelli has led the GOP field in endorsements, but he's been attacked by rivals for criticizing Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. He faces perennial candidate Hirsh Singh, far-right pastor Phil Rizzo and former Somerset County freeholder Brian Levine.
