Gov. Phil Murphy (D) “says he can help Democrats take back the House this fall and is ready to personally intervene in competitive races in his state—even ones where his liberal politics might not fit the districts.” He said “he plans to be involved in all five House races where Democrats hope to take Republican seats in New Jersey. He said he’ll show up in the swing districts even as he pushes a liberal agenda that includes raising taxes, legalizing marijuana and boosting the minimum wage to $15 per hour.”

The targeted districts: NJ-02, NJ-03, NJ-04, NJ-07, and NJ-11. Murphy: “There’s nowhere in the state I won’t go.” (Politico)
