In new Muphy ad, New Jerseyans say what they would do if they were governor

By David Wildstein, October 19 2021 7:00 am

A new TV ad for Gov. Phil Murphy’s re-election campaign uses a diverse group of New Jersey voters sitting behind a governor’s desk saying what they would do if they were governor as a way of highlighting Murphy’s accomplishments during his first term.

The ad, “If I,” continues Murphy’s theme of a “stronger and fairer” New Jersey, talking about health care, college tuition costs, clean energy jobs, paid family leave and middle class tax breaks.  After the litany of issues are recited, Murphy comes on to say “that’s what I’ve done so far.”

It will air on broadcast television networks in New York and Philadelphia and cable television stations statewide. 

Script: “(Voiceover) What would you do if you were governor? Okay… after you met Springsteen. (Person 1) Not bad.  (Person 2) First, I’d make healthcare, childcare and college more affordable.  (Person 3:) Man, I was going to say that.  (Person 4)  Create clean energy jobs. (Person 5) Springsteen? Frank Sinatra! Person 6: Defend our right to choose. (Person 7) Pass paid family leave.  (Person 1)  I’d make millionaires pay their fair share. (Person 5) So the middle class gets a break. (Person 6) Definitely use a break. (Person 7) That’s what I’d do. (Person 8) That’s what I would do.  (Murphy) So that’s what I’ve done. So far.  (Person 1) Boom! (Murphy) I’m pretty sure this is not my pen.”
