In a powerful rejection of the state's political Establishment, Massachusetts voters Tuesday chose two outsiders, Democrat John R. Silber, and Republican William F. Weld to run for governor in November. With 75% of the precincts counted, Silber, president of Boston University, had 53% of the vote, against 44% for former state Atty. Gen. Francis X. Bellotti. Lt. Gov. Evelyn Murphy, who withdrew from the race earlier, scored 3% of the vote.
