The Monmouth County Democrats endorsed former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy, of Middletown, to be the Party nominee for Governor in the June 6 Democrat Primary at their secret convention in Wall Township this afternoon, according to a facebook post by Fox News Contributor Julie Roginsky.

The endorsement traditionally gives the favored candidate superior ballot positioning within the County in the Primary election.

Murphy has been considered the runaway front runner for the nomination since Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop announced he would not seek the nomination last September.  Fulop endorsed Murphy, as did several Democrat County Chairs and Party Leaders.  Senate President Steve Sweeney announced that he would not be a candidate in early October and backed Murphy.

    another clueless, rich liberal who is buying off the Democrat masses to feed his gigantic, bored ego. Does this guy have any idea how to even begin talking about the mess the Democrat majority has made of this state? Can’t wait to hear his brilliant assessment of COAH, Abbott funding, property taxes, overregulation, and on and on as the real problems that are killing us go unnoticed by the Democrats. Oh I forgot – raise taxes on millionaires and businesses.
