DGA Statement on the Swearing-In of New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy
Today, DGA Chair and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper released the following statement on New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy’s inauguration:
“Congratulations to Gov. Phil Murphy on his historic inauguration today. Gov. Murphy has delivered solutions for a stronger and fairer New Jersey — and he’s not finished yet. He protected affordable health care, boosted the minimum wage, and enacted sweeping climate reforms. And most recently, he signed a bill into law enshrining women’s reproductive freedom.
“With his swearing-in today, Gov. Murphy becomes the first Democratic governor to win reelection in New Jersey in over 40 years. His proven track record resonated with New Jersey voters, who turned out to choose four more years of progress. Gov. Murphy is ready to keep moving New Jersey forward, and we look forward to seeing what he accomplishes in this next term.”
