TRENTON — Murphy for Governor 2021 today announced that Governor Phil Murphy has filed 51,367 petition signatures with the New Jersey Division of Elections, eclipsing the previous state record as strong grassroots support continues to drive momentum for the Governor’s reelection. The previous record of 43,042 petition signatures was set by Governor Murphy during his 2017 gubernatorial primary campaign.
“I’m incredibly proud to have earned the support of an inclusive, grassroots coalition that shares our commitment to a future that is wholly different from what we inherited,” said Governor Murphy. “Each signature represents the fire and fervor we’re seeing from Democrats across the state to build on our progress to move New Jersey forward.”“Even as we confront the challenges of a once in a century pandemic, New Jerseyans know that we can’t afford to go back to the old ways of doing things that left working and middle-class families behind,” continued Governor Murphy. “Together, we’ll continue to lay the foundation for a stronger and fairer New Jersey that works for every family.”
