Gov.-elect Murphy begins rounding out his Cabinet, filling 3 slots

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey residents now have a clearer picture of who could take on the Trump administration in court, write the state's roughly $35 billion budget and oversee the department in charge of Atlantic City.

Democratic Gov.-elect Phil Murphy is rounding out his Cabinet nominations, recently naming three officials.

Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir Grewal was picked to be New Jersey's next attorney general. Democratic Assemblywoman Elizabeth Muoio is his pick to be treasurer and Lt. Gov.-elect Sheila Oliver will over the Community Affairs, which oversees the state seizure of Atlantic City.

Murphy takes over from Republican Gov. Chris Christie on Jan. 16 and has indicated his administration's priorities would contrast sharply with Christie's.
