Singleton rules out 2021 run against Murphy

Senator laughs at the idea

By Nikita Biryukov, September 10 2019 3:32 pm

Don’t expect to see State Sen. Troy Singleton mount a primary challenge to Gov. Phil Murphy in 2021.

“And leave Joe Lagana?” Singleton said after laughing for roughly five seconds upon being asked whether he would run for governor at the end of Murphy’s first term. “Me and Joe are a team. As long as Joe’s here, I’m here.”

Lagana represents the safely-Democratic 38th legislative district. He won a special election for the remainder of State Sen. Bob Gordon’s term by 40 points last year.
