Philip Dunton Murphy is an American politician, diplomat, and financier serving as the 56th governor of New Jersey.

He is involved in many civic organizations and philanthropic pursuits. He served as finance chairman for the Democratic National Committee in the mid-late 2000s under Howard Dean.

In December 2019, Murphy became the chairperson of the Democratic Governors Association, a position he held for a year. He was reelected in an unexpectedly close race in 2021, defeating Republican nominee Jack Ciattarelli with 51.2% of the vote. Murphy is the first Democratic governor of New Jersey to win a second term since Brendan Byrne did so in 1977. In July 2022, Murphy became the first National Governors Association chair from New Jersey.
