Democrat Phil Murphy replacing GOP Gov. Chris Christie

In the wake of Gov. Phil Murphy and Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver being sworn in Tuesday, numerous officials offered up congratulations and other thoughts to New Jersey's new top executives.

Murphy's inaugural address was unabashedly liberal, calling for the wealthy to pay higher taxes, more funding for Planned Parenthood and a $15 minimum wage. "But it begins with having a fairer and stronger economy and society that works not just for some but for everyone", Murphy said.

"Our new governor, this coming week, has chosen to come to Wildwood once again to honor our Vietnam wall and the veterans throughout this area and the state", said Ernie Troiano Jr., mayor of Wildwood, "and to let us know that the veterans are no longer going to be put on the back burner - that the Veterans Affairs will be top priority".

Shearer scoffs at Wales handing Giggs coach's job
Without him for their final two 2018 World Cup qualifiers, Wales missed out on a play-off spot and their Russian dream collapsed. Giggs has been trying to land a job since then, and has been linked with vacancies in the Premier League and Championship.

The crowd roared as Murphy praised immigrants who help build a better future in the state, "and that includes from Haiti and continent of Africa".

Murphy's wife and four children joined him as he took the oath on the same Bible that John F. Kennedy used when he was sworn in as president. Robert Menendez; and Christie's lieutenant governor, Republican Kim Guadagno, whom Murphy defeated in November.

Murphy, who like Kennedy grew up in MA, also served several years under the Obama administration as ambassador to Germany. The two men shook hands on stage. "However, instead of writing yet more pages about age-old problems that never go away, let's write about the solutions", Murphy said. He will push for the legalization of marijuana and raising taxes on millionaires.

Giants acquire Andrew McCutchen as era ends in Pittsburgh
A person with direct knowledge of the trade confirmed that it is complete, pending physicals for the players involved. McCutchen batted.279 with 28 home runs and 88 RBIs last season, his ninth with the Pirates.

On Tuesday, the governor signaled he would still like to raise taxes on the rich.

Christie had previously said he was open to more regulation on the devices, arguing, "It's an accessory".

Doug Steinhardt, chairman of the state Republican Party, said that because of Democratic control in Trenton, "Our ability to check Phil Murphy's radically liberal agenda from inside the system is on life support". "New Jersey's taxpayers can not afford to be the personal piggybank for his liberal policies".

India Reactivates $525 Million Missile Deal With Israel Ahead of Netanyahu Visit
On Tuesday, Netanyahu will visit the Taj Mahal and then attend India's annual "Raisina Dialogue" geo-political conference. Israel sells nearly $1bn in defence hardware to India every year and is one of the country's top four arms suppliers.

Surrounded by his family, Murphy - a 60-year-old Middletown resident - was sworn in by state Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner in the midst of a festive ceremony. These will be important first steps, and without a doubt they signal a new day for New Jersey. "And in doing so we will send a loud and clear message that our days of muddling through from crisis to crisis are over - that we will charge forward with bold ideas and with a recognition that, while we can't change everything overnight, we also can't create a stronger tomorrow unless we start making smart investments today", he said.
