Chris Christie left the New Jersey governor's office with his popularity in tatters, but at least he didn't break a leg. Pressed by reporters for more specifics, Murphy said he would indeed take the full pay.

Sworn into office with the same Bible that President John F. Kennedy used for his inauguration almost 60 years ago, Gov. Phil Murphy repeatedly struck tones of service and inclusion during his inaugural address in Trenton yesterday.

On a federal level, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is seeking to crack down on marijuana while lawmakers from both parties, including New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker, are pushing legislation that would do the opposite.

Democrat Phil Murphy was sworn in Tuesday as the state's 56th governor by state Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner at Patriots Theater inside the War Memorial in Trenton.

Murphy built his campaign around undoing the Trump administration's efforts on health care, immigration and taxes.

Each of the three elected governors before Christie broke one of their legs during their term, former Obama administration official Eric Columbus noted on Twitter. Guadagno was the Republican nominee in last year's election. Oliver also will head of the state's Community Affairs Department and will become acting governor whenever murphy is out of state.

Day 1 on the job comes as Murphy returns state government to Democratic control for the first time since former Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat, left office in 2010 and making New Jersey one of only eight states where the party controls the governorship and the Legislature.

Democrat Phil Murphy wrote, "Today our great state turns a new page".

Murphy will attend an inaugural ball under a tent at MetLife Stadium.
