New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy is warning voters that the last thing the state needs right now is an ‘extreme leader’ and branded his opponent Jack Ciattarelli as an extremist that stands with white supremacists.
Murphy has criticized his opponent Jack Ciattarelli over his attendance at a Trump-themed “Stop the Steal” rally, claiming several times throughout his campaign that the event was full of extremists who believed in the former President’s claims of election rigging.
“The last thing we need right now is an extreme leader,” Murphy said. “There’s too much at stake in this election for anyone to sit it out.”
Murphy warned his audience at the annual Monmouth County Democrat Chairman’s Ball that not voting is not an option.
“There’s too much at stake in this election for anyone to sit it out,” Murphy said. “Things like do we stand with our sacred democracy or do we stand with white supremacists, confederate flags, and a pack of lies? That’s what’s on the ballot in twenty days.”
Murphy also criticized Ciattarelli for saying Trump’s greatest legacy was his three conservative picks to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“I need everyone to get up right now, let’s go,” Murphy said and began a chant. “Monmouth County Dems. Monmouth County Dems. Monmouth County Dems. Monmouth County Dems.”
Ciattarelli’s campaign does not respond to comments from Shore News Network and has blocked Shore News Network from its campaign Facebook page, so we did not reach out to Ciattarelli for comment.
