Phil Murphy to appoint nation’s first Sikh attorney general

Gov.-elect Phil Murphy will nominate Bergen County prosecutor Gurbir Grewal as the state’s next attorney general, NJ Advance Media has learned.

Grewal would be the nation’s first Sikh attorney general.

Murphy plans to announce his appointment at 11 a.m. in Trenton, according to two sources with knowledge of his decision. The sources were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter prior to the press conference and requested anonymity.
