The New Jersey Democratic State Committee has launched a totally revamped website with new branding ahead of the critical 2021 election season. The website features opportunities to get involved, donate to Democratic candidates, and be a part of events taking place throughout the year, which are all highlighted on the new site. Voters may also stay up to date with a regularly updated news feed and access important voter resources. The site is fully integrated with the Mobilize platform, which allows the party, candidates and grassroots advocates to create events and other activities and connect with voters. We hope you will use the tools on this new website to take an even more active role in helping elect Democrats all over New Jersey!
GOV. MURPHY UPDATE
This morning Governor Murphy was in Union City along with Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky to watch as local seniors became some of the first New Jerseyans to receive the company’s newly approved COVID-19 vaccine. Developed right here in New Jersey, the J&J vaccine is helping the state ramp up vaccination efforts, especially in underserved communities that are more difficult to reach.
Over 2.3 million vaccine doses have now been administered in the state, and New Jersey now ranks fifth in the nation in percentage of shots used and eighth in total doses given per day. It’s clear that Governor Murphy and his team, along with partners in county and local government and the private sector, are succeeding in ramping up vaccine distribution and doing the work to defeat COVID-19 once and for all.
For up to date information regarding new cases and directives regarding coronavirus, or information on vaccine registration and signup, visit the state’s dedicated COVID-19 Information Hub or follow Governor Murphy’s official pages on social media. You can also reach the state’s Vaccine Call Center at 1-855-568-0545.
PRESIDENT BIDEN UPDATE
President Biden’s capable, caring leadership is already earning him high marks with voters. New polling shows the President with a 60% approval rating, driven by his handling of the pandemic, the economy and other critical issues. The $1.9 trillion relief plan the President is proposing is also hugely popular despite unanimous Republican opposition, including from New Jersey’s own Jeff Van Drew and Chris Smith who voted against the plan. That’s a major reason why we need to get to work now to defeat both of these out of touch Republicans next year. Learn more about our “Traitor Van Drew” campaign here to join our fight to defeat Van Drew.
