The New Jersey Gubernatorial race is now set after Democrat and former Goldman Sachs Executive Phil Murphy and Republican Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno won their respective primaries earlier this week.

Guadagno greeted her party faithful in West Orange on Primary night.  She took her shots at her new opponent and addressed reporters on her first campaign stop after the election.  Guadagno defended why she didn't mention Governor Christie in her victory speech.
