COLLINGSWOOD, N.J. (AP) — The Gold Star father who has criticized President Donald Trump is campaigning in New Jersey for the Democratic candidate for governor.

Khizr Khan on Thursday is slated to attend a rally in support of Phil Murphy at the Collingswood Community Center.

Khan has been criticizing Trump since he spoke at the Democratic National Convention last year. His son was killed in Iraq in 2004.

He's the latest in a list of high-profile personalities, including Hillary and Bill Clinton, to campaign for Murphy.

Murphy faces Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno in the Nov. 7 election to succeed GOP Gov. Chris Christie.
