WASHINGTON — Today, AAPI Victory Fund congratulates New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy who won the closely contested gubernatorial election. In October of this year, AAPI Victory Fund endorsed Governor Murphy for his outstanding commitment to New Jersey AAPIs. This morning, AAPI Victory Fund is once again proud to support a leader so dedicated to prioritizing concerns near and dear to the AAPI community. 

AAPI Victory Fund Founder and Chairman Shekar Narasimhan issued the following statement:

“Today, I am thrilled to lead AAPI Victory Fund in extending our sincerest congratulations to Phil Murphy, who will continue his tenure as an exemplary leader of New Jersey. As the current governor, Murphy’s record speaks volumes about what he will accomplish in the next four years. Throughout his career, Murphy has demonstrated a profound commitment to the AAPI community and was at the forefront of combating the recent rise of anti-AAPI hate.”

“In a state with over 9.3 million residents, AAPI Victory Fund is proud to support a governor who knows that diversity is New Jersey’s strength, and who will adequately uplift the voices, concerns and values of our growing AAPI community. Over the next four years, Murphy’s tenure as governor will be critical in laying the groundwork to fortify, equitize and expand the political power of AAPIs across the state of New Jersey. We cannot wait to see what he achieves next.”
