Rep. Andy Kim, D-N.J., reportedly won by a large margin over the state’s first lady Tammy Murphy in New Jersey’s first Democratic convention on Saturday. 

The third-term congressman’s early victory against Murphy in Monmouth County was significant, as they will continue to compete in the primary contest to convince the state’s 20 other counties they are the best Democratic candidate to put forward in the race to replace embattled longtime Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J.

“If we can win here, where they’ve lived for decades here, I think it sends a very strong message across all of the counties,” Kim said about Murphy and her husband, Gov. Phil Murphy. 

The powerful couple have resided in Monmouth County for about 25 years, according to the New York Times. Meanwhile, Kim represents part of the same county in Congress.
