Giffords Endorses Phil Murphy For New Jersey Governor

Giffords, the gun violence prevention organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, announced today it is endorsing New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy for reelection. Governor Murphy has been a strong advocate for responsible gun violence prevention policies, and has made his long-standing commitment to the issue a hallmark of his gubernatorial campaign.

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords:

“Governor Murphy is a leader who knows how to get things done and consistently takes courageous actions to end gun violence in New Jersey. He’s made the Garden State safer with historic investments in community violence intervention and prevention programs, the lifesaving Extreme Risk law, and strong action to reduce gun trafficking. 

“This progress cannot be taken for granted and New Jersey needs a leader who will continue to stand up to the reckless gun lobby. That leader is Governor Murphy and Giffords is proud to endorse him for reelection. We know he will never stop working to make the people of New Jersey safer.”

Governor Phil Murphy:

“Giffords is a pivotal organization in the fight to end gun violence, and I am honored to receive their endorsement. We are leading the way in New Jersey when it comes to commonsense gun safety measures, but we won’t rest until we end the epidemic of senseless gun violence in every community.”
