Bedminster NJ, Dozens of protesters descended on the governor’s home Saturday protesting COVID-19 restrictions .
State Senate candidate David Winkler tweeted footage of the gathering, which had first rallied in Bedminster, New Jersey, near President Donald Trump’s golf club. Police kept people from congregating very close to the governor’s house, according to NJ.com.
Phil Murphy said Sunday morning that it’s still a possibility that New Jersey could go back into a state-wide lockdown as coronavirus cases continue to spike in the midst of the second surge of the pandemic.
‘It’s on the table in terms of a shutdown,’ Murphy told Bret Baier on ‘Fox News Sunday’. ‘I don’t anticipate it and I sure as heck don’t want to go that route.’
He said federal aid in the form of another stimulus package would ‘give us a lot more ammunition to do a lot more things right now.’
With over 17,124 deaths in the state of New Jersey due to COVID , and nearly 40% of coronavirus-related fatalities in New Jersey have taken place at nursing homes. Governor Murphy’s polices have been a total failure .
