Now that it’s officially Phil Murphy versus Steve Sweeney, the campaigns last night undertook a new round of campaigning ahead of the 2017 governor’s contest.

Murphy went to Verona with special guest Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, who had endorsed him a day earlier. Sweeney did an event in Middlesex, perceived to be Murphy’s strongest county, and wooed Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Kevin McCabe.
