Party Supports Governor Estes Underdog In New Jersey TRENTON, N. J. (INS) About a million New Jersey voters go to the polls today in a primary contest that finds Sen. Estes Kefauver, as usual, the underdog. The predicted few light showers could cut even further into the turnout of a fraction of registered party members in the Garden state.
