Note: Updates are at the bottom of the post
Results are coming in from around the state. House results at NJ.com:
At 9:02PM, Runyan at 6022 (55%) to Murphy at 4887 (45%). Not a strong showing by Runyan but a lead is a lead.
In NJ6, Little at 2,806 (53%) leads Gooch at 2448 (47%.) I find that surprising. It is 25% Reporting.
Lance is at only 56% but easily leads the nearest of his challengers. Just 5% reporting there.
Adler is at 77% with 26% reporting.
There are lots of interesting primaries in other states — I recommend Swing State Project, Talking Points Memo, and Daily Kos.
Update (9:14pm): Forgot to check NJ12, where teabagger Corsi leads Sipprelle 55%-45% with 19% reporting.
Update (9:42) Runyan wins 56% to 44% with 98% reporting. Little still leads Gooch and Corsi still leads Sipprelle, but lots of districts still to report.
Update (9:58): Sipprelle just pulled ahead by a few hundred votes with 63% reporting. Little has a nearly eight hundred vote lead with 43% reporting.
Update (10:13): Sipprelle remains ahead 6,506 to 6,113 with 71% reporting. Little leads 5,639 to 4,981 with 64% reporting. I have no idea what districts are still out and whom they would favor.
Update (10:30) Gooch keeps creeping closer, but Little still leads 6000 to 5568 with 77% reporting. This is going to be very close.
Sipprelle is still leading.
Update (10:48) Photo finish coming! Little 6171, Gooch 5866 with 86% reporting.
Update (11:10) The AP/NJ.com results say it’s Little 6674 to Gooch 6579 with 99% reporting. Contradictory headlines have flashed by at PolitickerNJ but I think the small Little lead is correct. I imagine there will be a recount but it looks like Little will just barely make it.
Sipprelle pulled away in the late reporting districts and ended up winning 8,800 (54%) to 7521 (46%).
Update (11:46) I should say Runyan ended up with 60%, better than the earlier reports.
