WYCKOFF, N.J. – Today, United States Congressman Josh Gottheimer was endorsed for reelection by Democratic nominee for President, and former Vice President, Joe Biden. This endorsement, along with that of former President Barack Obama, continues to show a unified Democratic Party standing behind Gottheimer.

“I am honored to have Joe Biden supporting my campaign for reelection. Vice President Biden has spent his career working to strengthen America’s reputation at home and abroad, to expand access to affordable health care, and to support our first responders. He is someone who has always put helping the American people over partisan concerns. I look forward to working closely with Vice President Biden when he is elected President,” said Congressman Gottheimer.

“Josh Gottheimer is a fighter, who has been tireless in his work to make healthcare more affordable, lower taxes, and support our veterans and first responders. When COVID hit, Josh worked to secure desperately-needed PPE for his District and to get New Jersey families, first responders, and small businesses the assistance they needed. And, I’m proud to support Josh,” said Vice President Biden.
