SOMERSET, NJ - Gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy fresh off an appearance with Joe Biden came to the Imperia for Assemblyman Joe Danielsen’s fundraiser to show his support.
Senator Bob Smith, local officials and supporters were also on hand to help Danielsen raise money for the upcoming November elections.
“In Franklin Township we have five ward seats up this year, a sixth council person running for freeholder an assembly person running for assembly again, Danielson said. “We have all the oars in the water and we are going to do our part throughout our legislative district, but certainly in Franklin Township.”
Danielson also spoke about how his running mates will continue to run clean campaign during this election season.
“The best things said is heard by no one, shut up keep on working stay focused, that’s what we are going to do here in Franklin,” Danielsen said.
Murphy praised Danielsen and Smith and discussed how the 17th district has a lot of strong, like minded candidates, and how right now is a all hands on deck moment.
“This is as good as it gets the 17 sort of sets the bar, its got that uniqueness its got its foot in a couple of counties,” Murphy said. “That is a really good thing, the amount of action in Franklin Township to take on that is good for everybody, I know it is good for me. You have got enough really good candidates in competitive races, and a Freeholder race to boot, that’s good for all of us up and down the ballot.”
“Getting as many like minded brothers and sisters across the goal line is the name of the game, because this state’s a mess,” Murphy said. “No matter how good any one of us is, we are going to need as many like minded souls with us, because we are going to have to spend political capital to get this place fixed.”
