The New Jersey State AFL-CIO has voted to endorse Tom Malinowski for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th district.

The New Jersey Building and Construction Trades Council is backing the Republican incumbent, five-term Rep. Leonard Lance.

“After last year’s banner victory for working families, the labor movement will once again mobilize to secure across-the-board victories for pro-worker candidates,” said New Jersey State AFL-CIO President Charles Wowkanech. “Labor’s voice ensures that New Jersey remains a leader in terms of workplace justice, and together, we will continue to build our economy through job creation, fair wages, and our middle class values of equal opportunity and socioeconomic mobility.”

Malinowski worked in the Obama administration as Assistant U.S. Secretary of State, where he oversaw the department’s Office of International Labor Affairs.
