HMP Statement Congratulating Northam and Murphy on Their Victories Tonight

November 8, 2017

WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority PAC Executive Director Charlie Kelly issued the following statement congratulating Ralph Northam and Phil Murphy on their victories.

“Congratulations to Governors-Elect Ralph Northam and Phil Murphy on their victories in Virginia and New Jersey. Voters have sent a strong and clear message that the divisive, extreme agenda put forward by Donald Trump and Paul Ryan have no place in America. Northam and Murphy have achieved impressive wins – victories based on embracing our shared ideals – and victories based on bringing people together around expanding opportunity for everyone. These wins prove that Americans are stepping up to push back against Donald Trump and Paul Ryan’s radical policies – showing the power of the grassroots, a surge in participation, and the increased activism that we’ve seen across the country. Paul Ryan and Donald Trump are becoming more and more toxic, because they continue to push a failed agenda that hurts the middle class. House Republicans are in full blown panic mode.”
