‘It’s quite clear there’s a lot of hurt out there,’ Murphy says after close New Jersy governor’s race. Gov. Phil Murphy’s happy to be the first Democratic governor to get re-elected to a second term since 1977, but he realizes the closer-than-expected outcome of Tuesday’s election means there’s more work to be done.
That was the message he gave to Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” Sunday morning.
“Chuck, it’s quite clear there’s a lot of hurt out there. And there are a lot of kitchen tables that we need to connect more deeply with and help folks get through this period, whether they lost a loved one, a job, a small business, they’re frustrated by the ongoing pandemic or economic recovery, whatever it may be,” Murphy said.
