Cape May — Phil Murphy today formally received the endorsement of Cape May County’s grassroots Democratic committee members, completing a sweep of all 21 county endorsements.
“Cape May needs a governor who will not forget our veterans, our small businesses, and our residents, and we know that Phil will be that governor,” said county Chairman Jeff Sutherland. “The vote of our committee to endorse Phil was unanimous. Cape May County’s Democrats are energized and ready.”
“I am incredibly grateful for, and humbled by, the overwhelming support this campaign has received from the locally elected grassroots Democratic committee members here in Cape May and across New Jersey,” said Murphy. “Since November, every crowd has been successively larger and more engaged, a real sign that Democrats are ready for a new direction for New Jersey. With our party united, we will be a potent force against the worst designs of Donald Trump and Chris Christie.”
The county committee voted on Wednesday night, and formally announced the endorsement today.
