DGA Statement on Gov. Phil Murphy’s Victory in the New Jersey Gubernatorial Election
The following is a statement by DGA Chair New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Gov. Phil Murphy’s win in the New Jersey race for governor:
“Congratulations to Gov. Phil Murphy on his re-election as Governor of New Jersey. This win is historic — Gov. Murphy is the first Democratic governor to be reelected in New Jersey in over 40 years. Gov. Murphy has a proven track record that resonates with New Jersey voters, who turned out to choose moving forward, not back.
“Gov. Murphy provided trusted leadership throughout the pandemic, navigating health and economic crises to emerge with a stronger and fairer New Jersey. Gov. Murphy delivered on the issues that matter most to New Jerseyans — enshrining affordable health care protections into law, boosting the minimum wage to $15/hr, protecting the right to choose, and enacting sweeping climate reforms.
“The DGA was proud to support Gov. Murphy and his campaign, and we look forward to four more years of moving New Jersey forward.”
