New Jersey’s U.S. senators endorsed Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-Paterson) Wednesday.

“Over the past few months, Bill and I have worked together to feed children facing hunger during this epidemic, deliver vital medical supplies to our health care workers, combat political interference in our drug approval process, and bring home billions of dollars in federal funding to combat COVID-19,” U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez said. “Bill Pascrell is the toughest progressive warrior in Congress. He’s exactly the leader we need fighting for us right now and in the aftermath of this crisis.”

Pascrell faces primary challenges from Alp Basaran and Zina Spezakis.

“Leadership that provides safety measures for essential workers and ensures coverage for COVID-19 treatment. Accountability for corporations and protections for workers,” U.S. Sen. Cory Booker said. “That’s why I’m fighting alongside colleagues like my friend Bill Pascrell, one of the toughest progressives in Congress. With so much at stake, it’s crucial that we make sure he is reelected.”
