Despite a well-funded and highly-publicized campaign, former hedge fund lawyer Reshma Saujani was trounced in yesterday’s Democratic primary for Congress.
Saujani, who worked at Fortress Investment Group before resigning to run in New York’s 14th Congressional District, received just 19% of the vote. Rep.
