Murphy adds Westfield stop to boost Mandelblatt, Gunderman

Schedule change sends governor to 21st district

By David Wildstein, November 03 2019 10:25 am

Gov. Phil Murphy and Rep. Tom Malinowski will campaign for Democratic Assembly candidates Lisa Mandelblatt and Stacey Gunderman at the Westfield train station this afternoon, the New Jersey Democratic State Committee said today.

The 21st district stop was added by the governor this morning and the two candidates are expected to adjust their schedules to join him at 2 PM.

Mandelblatt and Gunderman are seeking to unseat incumbents Jon Bramnick (R-Westfield) and Nancy Munoz (R-Summit) in a race that both sides admit is extraordinarily close.

Bramnick would be the first sitting Assembly Minority Leader in at least 100 years to lose his own seat.

Polling obtained and reviewed by the New Jersey Globe showed Murphy’s approvals in the 21st district to be split at 38%-38%.

Murphy has already been in Hudson and Bergen today and is headed to Livingston to support Councilman Michael Vieira in a special election for township council.  He’ll also be in Somerset, where Democrats are looking to take control of the Board of Freeholders for the first time since they did it on Lyndon Johnson’s coattails.

The governor will be in Middlesex County later today.

First Lady Tammy Murphy was in the 11th and 38th districts this morning and will be at the Morris County Democratic Canvass Launch in the hotly-contested 25th district later this afternoon.
