He continued, “We have to elect worker friendly candidates to state and local government to combat what is going to happen on the national level. If we do so, working people will be protected from some of the federal regulations we expect will be passed.” Murphy will be in the Democratic primary race on June 6, 2017. If he succeeds then, he will run for governor with the vote on November 7.
