Gottheimer endorsed by New Jersey Herald

Sussex daily newspaper says Democrat had a strong first term

The New Jersey Herald has endorsed Josh Gottheimer (D) for re-election to a second term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Rather than vote in lockstep with the Democratic leadership — in fact, he’s open to new leadership in his party — he is guided by what he believes is best for the 5th District,” the editorial board said. “Meanwhile, back home, Gottheimer has excelled at constituent service. In his efforts to ‘claw back’ federal tax money to New Jersey that otherwise might go to ‘moocher states’ (a clever, catchy terminology), he has delivered grants and equipment for law enforcement and first responders, and aid to individuals, such as an 85-year-old Vernon woman whom he helped to receive $7,500 for home repairs.”

The Herald says that Republican John McCann “fails to articulate clearly his alternative approach to this issue — or indeed his views on many issues facing the district and the nation.”

“He has not made a compelling case for his own candidacy,” the newspaper wrote.

The newspaper says Gottheimer should be judged by his record.

“Two years in Washington is not much time, yet Gottheimer already has much to show for it,” the editorial board wrote. “We see no reason he should not be returned to Congress to build upon the accomplishments of his first term.”
