For much of 2019, Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration faced a nagging crisis: former campaign volunteer Katie Brennan’s allegations that a top Murphy aide raped her during the governor’s first campaign.

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.

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.Posted: January 22nd, 2017 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2017 Elections, 2017 NJ Gubernatorial Politics, Monmouth County Life, Phil Murphy | Tags: 2017 elections, 2017 Gubernatorial race, Julie Roginsky, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Phil Murphy | 2 Comments »
