Senate President Steve Sweeney declined to endorse Gov. Phil Murphy’s re-election Thursday.

“Governor’s not running for re-election right now. That’s next year,” he said when asked if he’d back Murphy for a second term. “We pay attention election by election.”

On Saturday, Rep. Donald Norcross endorsed Murphy for a second term at a rally headlined by the governor and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
