Rep. Josh Gottheimer announced on Friday that he had put up or raised more than $1.5 million for Democratic candidates, primarily those tied with Problem Solvers Caucus.
“I believe that politics is a team sport, and I am proud to have been able to help elect and re-elect candidates and Members of Congress committed to working across the aisle to break the gridlock and move our country forward,” Gottheimer said. “I am grateful and honored to have been re-elected to my second term in Congress, and eager to partner with my newly elected colleagues find a bipartisan path on many of the most pressing issues facing our country.”
Gottheimer said he also helped other moderate Democrats with tough races. He didn’t, however, help Congressman-elect Tom Malinowski in his race against Rep. Leonard Lance.
Lance and Gottheimer both belong to the Problem Solvers, of whom Gottheimer is co-chair.
An agreement between caucus members prohibits one problem solver from campaigning against another.
