Gov. Phil Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy will launch a whirlwind campaign swing through New Jersey beginning on Friday, making 26 stops in twelve counties between the two of them through the weekend in support of Democratic candidates up and down the ballot running in Tuesday’s general election.

The schedule includes seven stops in Bergen County and six on Morris County.

They are also expected to add campaign events to their calendars on Monday and Tuesday.

Murphy will attend dinners on Friday night for the Mercer County Democratic Committee in Trenton and the Brian P. Stack Civic Association.  The First Lady will attend a Morris County Democratic GOTV Rally in East Hanover, and a Roselle Park Democratic Committee Rally.

Roselle Park is in the 21st legislative district, where Democrats Lisa Mandelblatt and Stacey Gunderman are trying to flip two Republican Assembly seats against Minority Leader Jon Bramnick and Minority Whip Nancy Munoz.

On Saturday, the governor will begin the day at the Passaic County Democratic Annual Breakfast in Paterson, followed by a Coffee & Canvass kickoff in Dover, a town where Democrats need to run up a big margin in a bid to capture two longtime Republican Assembly seats.

In Dover, Democrat Carolyn Alderman is running for mayor against incumbent James P. Dodd, a onetime Democrat who is seeking re-election as an Independent.

Murphy will attend the Children’s Diwali Ceremony in Parsippany, the Madison Democratic Canvass Launch in Madison, and lunch with Chatham Democratic mayoral candidate Thad Kobylarz.  He will end his day at the Bergen County Democratic phone bank in Hackensack.

Tammy Murphy will attend canvass launches for Democrats in Monmouth, Ocean and Burlington counties.

The governor will begin his schedule on Sunday at the Hudson County Central Labor Council breakfast, followed by a breakfast for Bergen County Democratic Chairman Paul Juliano.

He will attend a pre-election breakfast for Livingston Democrats and their council candidate, Michael Vieria, a Somerset County Democratic canvass launch in Bridgewater, and a Middlesex County Democratic GOTV rally in Woodbridge.

Murphy’s final Sunday stop is a reception for South River Democrats.

The First Lady will start Sunday at a Monmouth County canvass launch, followed by appearances at the breakfast for Paramus Democrats and a canvass launch in Hasbrouck Heights.  She will attend a rally for Ridgefield Democrats, and campaign with Democratic candidates at a supermarket in Hackensack.   Late Sunday, the First lady will attend a canvass launch in Mendham in the 25th district.
