Governor Phil Murphy

Statement from Governor Murphy on the Passing of U.S. Congressman Elijah E. Cummings

10/17/2019

"A model of dignity and strength, Elijah Cummings' upbringing in a segregated Baltimore led him on a lifelong mission to promote justice, to always speak truth to power, and to ensure a fair shake for every American. His loss isn't just one for his Maryland constituents, or for his colleagues in Congress, but for our entire nation."
