After a lewd tape surfaced of Donald Trump making offensive comments about women, Phil Murphy, Democratic candidate for governor, this morning released the following statement:

“If Chris Christie has any moral fiber left, he would immediately pull his endorsement and resign as Donald Trump’s surrogate, supporter, advisor, and transition chairman. To remain with Trump now is nothing less than a tacit endorsement of his disgusting misogyny. No one who believes their social status allows them to get away with committing sexual assault deserves the national spotlight, let alone to be considered for the presidency. Our state can no longer be tainted by Christie’s affiliation with, and blind support for, the national embarrassment that is Trump.”
