State Party Stands With Gov. Murphy’s Efforts to Protect Voting Rights While Keeping Residents Safe
TRENTON, NJ — The New Jersey Democratic State Committee is condemning a lawsuit filed by the Trump campaign against Governor Phil Murphy and the state as a blatant attempt at voter disenfranchisement and another case of Republican leaders spreading lies about vote by mail. The state party will take any necessary action to fight back against the Trump lawsuit and ensure that New Jersey voters have the opportunity to which they are constitutionally guaranteed to cast their vote without putting their lives in danger.
“Governor Murphy has consistently put people ahead of politics and protected the health and safety of New Jersey residents throughout the pandemic, and his decision to allow universal mail-in voting in the November election is no different,” said NJDSC Chairman John Currie. “President Trump’s lawsuit is another clear attack on our democracy and on our voting rights, just like his efforts to destroy the Post Office and delegitimize the electoral process. New Jersey’s record of expanding vote by mail has been a clear success and our party will not allow Trump’s cynical and desperate attempt to threaten both our health and our sacred voting rights to succeed.”
