Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, strongly endorsed Congressman Josh Gottheimer for re-election today. Gottheimer represents the Fifth Congressional District in northern New Jersey.

“I am proud to endorse my good friend, Josh Gottheimer, because at this critical moment in our nation’s history we need leaders firmly committed to our core values of justice and equality and the ability to unite people to take on tough challenges. We have worked together on key issues ranging from criminal justice reform to clean air and water to affordable health care for all Americans.  I know Josh has also fought tirelessly for New Jersey, helping bring federal dollars back to the District. Re-electing Josh is also essential to maintaining our majority in the House. I look forward to his reelection and continuing to work alongside him to continue to build a strong future for our region and our country,” said Chairman Jeffries.

Rep. Josh Gottheimer added, “I am beyond grateful and honored to have the Chairman’s support. Hakeem is an unbelievable leader and a dear friend, and his accomplishments for Americans are second to none.”
