Ex-Goldman Sachs Exec Mulls Run for Governor

"After serving as the nation's ambassador to Germany for four years, Philip Murphy -- a deep-pocketed Democratic donor and former Goldman Sachs executive -- is now setting his sights on running for New Jersey governor," the Newark Star Ledger reports.

"And it comes as Democrats -- stymied and overshadowed by Republican Gov. Chris Christie for most of the last five years -- believe they're near shoo-ins to reclaim the governor's office in a post-Christie world. Though the next race for governor isn't scheduled until 2017, it could come sooner if Christie leaves early to run for president."
