Josh Gottheimer on Tuesday announced a slate of local Republican businesspeople and residents backing his reelection over Republican challenger John McCann.

“When I first ran for Congress, I pledged to go to Washington to work with both sides–Democrats and Republicans–to get things done,” Gottheimer said. “Since the day I took my oath, I’ve been working to live up to that promise. That’s meant fighting with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to lower taxes, cut out-of-date regulations, support our small businesses, and stand up for Jersey Values.”

Gottheimer has made a name for himself in his first term largely because of his role as co-chair of the Problem Solvers’ Caucus, a bipartisan group of congresspeople that aims to combat gridlock in the capitol.

Among the events attendees were Michael Lieberman, partner at Advisors Capital Management; Joe Bossolina, President of McGee Amusements; Amy Eskilson, President and CEO of Inrad Optics; Candace Kristin Arslanian, CEO of Candace Kristin; Joe Cipolla, Owner of Cipolla Advisors LLC; Lauren Cohen, CEO of Lauren Cohen Nutrition; Enid Kossar, Emerson resident; and Eugene Lipkowitz, Antitrust Consultant.

“My experience with Josh in terms of business is that he’s a centrist, he’s a moderate, he’s the kind of person who will get things done for the state of New Jersey. I’ve reached out to Josh, he’s helped me. I’ve reached out to him for other people, he’s helped them,” Bossolina said. “Josh is the kind of person we all need to come around and support, because, at the end of day—when there’s a lot of disharmony in the country—eventually, we’re all going to have to deal with each other, and Josh is the kind of guy who can bring us all together.”
