Statement from Governor Murphy on the Passing of Senator John McCain

“During my time as Ambassador to Germany, I had the distinct pleasure of getting to know Senator John McCain well. He understood the importance of a strong American presence in the world, especially in maintaining our Transatlantic partnerships. In the Senate, he embodied the very American notion that we could disagree without losing our commonality, that we could compromise on policy without abandoning our principles — something that is rapidly becoming in short supply. Tammy and I send our deepest condolences to Cindy and the entire McCain family. Our nation has lost a hero and a guiding light.”
