Tammy Murhy drops out

Tammy Murphy, the wife of Gov. Phil Murphy (D-N.J.), ended her primary campaign for Senate on Sunday.

The announcement abruptly ends a highly anticipated Senate bid that launched with high expectations, leaving Rep. Andy Kim (D-N.J.) as the only major candidate remaining in the race to replace Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).

“After many busy, invigorating and yes, challenging months, I am suspending my Senate campaign today,” Murphy announced in a video. “I’ve been genuine and factual throughout. But it is clear to me that continuing in this race will involve waging a very divisive and negative campaign, which I am not willing to do.”

Murphy struggled to overcome concerns about her qualifications and ties to the governor’s office, despite a suite of high-power endorsements from most of the state’s congressional delegation and backing from influential county party leaders.
