Assemblywoman Carol Murphy isn’t ready to endorse a presidential candidate, but she does have an early favorite.
“Officially picked? I have not come out and endorsed yet, but I am leading towards Bloomberg,” Murphy said. “I did my research, and I think what he has done will, one, beat Trump. Two is we’ll steer America back in the direction it needs to go.”
Murphy’s husband, Michael Muller, runs former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s New Jersey presidential campaign.
Bloomberg, who is pouring tens of millions of dollars into his campaign, has so far won endorsements from Rep. Josh Gottheimer, Rep. Mikie Sherrill and Democratic State Committee Secretary Janice Kovach, among others.
