Voters went to the polls in New Jersey, New York, and around the country yesterday and we have a full rundown for you. We can’t be sure, but we are pretty confident that you won’t read about the New Jersey Assembly races AND the Mississippi gubernatorial anywhere else.
Phil Murphy won his gubernatorial contest by a significant margin. Democratic majorities in New Jersey’s Legislature grew. Bill de Blasio overwhelmingly won a second term. Political power shifted substantially in New York City suburbs. Election night was a clear victory for Democrats in the region. Murphy’s robust win combined with Ralph Northam’s larger-than-expected win in the Virginia gubernatorial have national Democrats and many political pundits claiming a rejection of President Trump’s first year in office.
