Source: Middlesex to Back Murphy for NJ Governor This Morning

Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Kevin McCabe and the leaders of his organization this morning will formally back former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy for Governor.

Throughout the backroom processes of the 2017 gubernatorial contest, McCabe consistently showed himself to be a Murphy fan, and the endorsement of his organization comes as no surprise.

Later today, Passaic, Bergen, Hudson and a handful of small county organizations will back Murphy, and tomorrow Essex County is expected to endorse him.

*UPDATED*

McCabe’s full statement:

“Because of his business acumen and his years of work on behalf of the residents of our state, Phil Murphy is uniquely qualified to lead New Jersey during these challenging times. He is the progressive leader we need to fight for good-paying jobs, college affordability, women’s health and greater gun safety. Democrats across the county will work tirelessly to ensure that he is our next governor.”
