Chief Justice Stuart Rabner administers oath of office to Governor Phil Murphy

"This is not as much a battle between Democrats and Republicans, but a battle between right and wrong - between standing up for the people of New Jersey or standing for failed Washington politics", he said.

Murphy and Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver tell News 12 New Jersey that they are humbled by the support and are ready to get to work for the state.

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. He succeeds two-term Republican Gov. Chris Christie.

New Jersey's next governor tweeted out morning wishes to the state.

Oliver will head the state's Department of Community Affairs will serve as acting governor whenever Murphy is out of state.

He was attending a prayer service at Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton and his inaugural ball will take place Tuesday night under a tent at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

Phil Murphy posted a photo of his wife and children in a group hug on Twitter Tuesday and wrote "Today our great state turns a new page".

Motorists driving to the inauguration should be aware the Route 29 south Memorial Drive and Market Street exits remain closed because of flooding.
