Blasts Murphy for his silence regarding sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo.
Jack Ciattarelli, the presumptive Republican nominee for governor of New Jersey, today demanded that Governor Phil Murphy release his communications with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo regarding their policies forcing COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes and blasted Murphy for his silence regarding the accusations of sexual harassment lodged against Cuomo.
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. That same man kept a state government job for months after top staffers found out — which led to a legislative panel concluding Murphy’s inner circle failed her “every step of the way.”
Ocean County Republican Chairman Frank B. Holman has endorsed Jack Ciattarelli for Governor.
“Jack has demonstrated that he has what it takes to not only unite our Party, but to attract independents and Democrats to join our coalition and fix New Jersey,” said Chairman Holman. “Jack shares our values and understands our struggles; Phil Murphy does not.”
Governor Murphy has been in power for three years now. It’s time for us to ask ourselves, are we better off? We need a chief executive, not an out-of-touch elitist. I am ready for the challenge. pic.twitter.com/0g5qa6PyRU
Jack Ciattarelli, the front runner for the Republican nomination to take on Governor Phil Murphy in November, issued the following statement to MMM on the news of former NJ GOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt’s withdrawal as a candidate for governor:
Jack Ciattarelli, the front runner for GOP nomination for governor of New Jersey, slammed Governor Phil Murphy as “drunk on power” after Murphy vetoed legislation that would have allowed restaurants to expand their outdoor footprints.

What could be more important for state government to be doing than starting vaccination of our elderly, 7,100 who have already died, on the first day? This is the biggest fail of the COVID response in New Jersey. There must be a better explanation than we missed it by a day! https://t.co/WTSMInBJqq
Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) today criticized the Murphy administration’s continued blockade of New Jersey’s reopening and cited numerous metrics from surrounding states’ successful reopening.
“That the Governor, with a straight face, can cite a debunked study of an incident that happened over 8,000 miles away involving a restaurant in China with a wheezy, inadequate ventilation system that doesn’t conform to standards used in this country…to justify continuing to kill businesses here in New Jersey is outrageous and demoralizing for anyone trying to hold out hope that there’s any real, scientific focus on our safety and the health of our economy,” said O’Scanlon. “That the Governor, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, continues to suggest that we have to continue to destroy thousands of businesses and jobs and livelihoods is simply unconscionable.”
