Steinhardt jabs Murphy for Iowa campaign trip

Governor stumping for Booker in Des Moines

Republican State Chairman Doug Steinhardt on Monday jabbed Gov. Phil Murphy with a letter asking that the latter come back from his trip to Iowa with a plan for New Jersey

“If you haven’t read, New Jersey is in crisis. Our infrastructure is crumbling, debt mounting, and businesses and families leaving. Our public pension system is almost bankrupt,” Steinhardt said. “Meanwhile, the failure of our elected, Democratic leaders to put good policy ahead of their personal pursuits for power threatens to shut down state government in three weeks. And you’re not here.”

Murphy traveled to Des Moines, Iowa, Tuesday to stump for U.S. Sen. Cory Booker’s presidential campaign.

He’s due to return Wednesday afternoon.

Steinhardt also sent a letter to Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds asking that she give Murphy some ideas should the two meet on the governor’s trip to the state.

“Our Governor and Senator lost their way a long time ago. Today, their ambition leads them to Iowa, but leaves New Jersey behind,” Steinhardt said. “Should your paths cross while they pander to Iowa’s people, please, give Phil Murphy and Cory Booker a road map; not one that will help them find their way home, but one that lets us afford to keep our homes.”
