“Sen Menendez Leads in Backing Democrat Tammy Murphy: NJ Organization Endorses Murphy for Governor

The New Jersey Democratic Organization has recently announced their endorsement of Democrat nominee, Tammy Murphy, for the state’s upcoming gubernatorial race. In an enthusiastic and highly anticipated statement released earlier this week, the group formerly chaired by Senator Bob Menendez, made their decision public. The NJDO cited Tammy Murphy’s strong public service record, which included her current stint as New Jersey First Lady and previous experience as chairwoman of the state Human Services Commission. Together with several leading county Democratic Committees, the NJDO said that Tammy Murphy was the perfect candidate to lead New Jersey into the future and that it was a “clear choice” for the organization. In addition to Murphy’s impressive list of accomplishments, the NJDO noted that as the wife of current Governor Phil Murphy, Tammy is uniquely qualified for the state’s top job. She has worked side-by-side with Governor Murphy on education, healthcare, job creation, and clean energy initiatives. Representing a wide-range of progressive and socially just goals, the NJDO said it was fully confident in Tammy Murphey’s ability to carry out their agenda and continue to make New Jersey one of the most progressive states in the nation. The NJDO’s endorsement of Tammy Murphy not only demonstrates the state’s unified commitment to progressivism, but it also marks a significant turning point in New Jersey politics. If elected, Tammy Murphy would be the first woman to serve as the state’s Governor. With the full support of the NJDO and several county Democratic Committees, Governor-elect Murphy is poised to make history and to continue the progressive bilateral conversation the state has become known for.
