NEW JERSEY -

The newly selected Democratic and Republican gubernatorial candidates kicked off their post-primary campaigning throughout the state Wednesday.

Phil Murphy, the Democratic nominee, appeared at a women's health roundtable in Newark Wednesday, where he promised to restore funding to programs like Planned Parenthood.

"People are dying and people are getting sick," he said. "They don't have to die and don't need to get sick."

Meanwhile, Republican nominee Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno spent the day hosting a roundtable of her own in Burlington County, focusing on lowering property taxes and monitoring the government.

"Government is too big in New Jersey," she said.
