GOP legislators bash Sherrill for being a Murphy accolyte

Republicans miss that Murphy’s budget was not voted on today

Eleven Republican legislators criticized Mikie Sherrill for being a Democrat and taking help from Gov. Phil Murphy.

The legislators – State Sens. Anthony Bucco and Joseph Pennacchio, Assemblymen Anthony Bucco, Robert Auth, Michael Patrick Carroll, Kevin Rooney, Chris DePhillips and Harold Wirth, and Assemblywomen Betty Lou DeCroce, Nancy Munoz and Holly Schepisi – have all endorsed Assemblyman Jay Webber for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th district.

“When Governor Murphy was elected last year, one thing was clear- a huge tax hike was coming. We’ve watched with dismay as Democrats rough out the edges of one of the biggest tax hikes in New Jersey history, the legislators wrote. “Now, Mikie Sherrill is campaigning for office with Governor Murphy, accepting his help on the campaign trail, and running under his party’s banner.”

The legislators said that “Governor Murphy is proposing $1.5 Billion dollars in new taxes for New Jersey families and small businesses. “

“We stand firmly opposed. Mikie Sherrill’s silence on this issue has made clear that if she were in our shoes, she would be voting yes on Murphy’s $1.5 Billion dollar tax hike on hard working tax payers,” the said, although there was actually no vote on Murphy’s budget.  The only budget under consideration in the Legislature today was the one submitted by Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin.
