Is Murphy embracing Trump-like political tactics?

BY Michael Aron, Chief Political Correspondent |

In a recent column, The Record’s political columnist Charles Stile said Gov. Phil Murphy is becoming more and more like Donald Trump. How?

“Not ideologically, but he is embracing some of the asymmetrical tactics of Trumpian warfare,” said Stile. “How successful he is, is questionable, but he seems to have a little more focus, he’s a little sharper because of it.”

He spoke with Chief Political Correspondent Michael Aron about how those tactics could earn Murphy some political wins in Trenton.
