Democratic New Jersey Governor Murphy wins re-election in tight race

Insight Online News

Washington, Nov 4 : Democratic New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy barely won his reelection bid, AP reported.

Murphy’s victory allows the Democrats to avoid another crushing upset, coming just hours after Terry McAuliffe conceded to Trump-backed Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin in the state of Virginia gubernatorial contest.

Earlier in the day, Murphy had a lead of less than one percent over his Republican rival Jack Ciattarelli, according to the report on Wednesday.

Murphy is the state’s first Democratic governor to secure two straight terms in 44 years.
