Murphy for Governor Launches Third General Election Television Ad: “Repeated”

Share

NEWARK — Murphy for Governor today launched its third General Election television ad — “Repeated” — highlighting how Republican gubernatorial nominee Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli has consistently undermined lifesaving public health measures and prioritized extreme politics over science while repeating Trump’s discredited lies on COVID-19.

Assemblyman Ciattarelli’s out-of-touch and dangerous Trump-style approach to the pandemic reflects his actual public health positions, including his opposition to vaccine requirements for childhood diseases like mumps and measles. Ciattarelli has doubled down on his COVID-19 stance, downplaying the seriousness of the virus — with a jaw-dropping and demonstrably false claim: “Children are not vulnerable to this virus.”
