John Kerry raising money for Andy Kim

Former U.S. Secretary of State says he worked with Kim in White House situation room

Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is raising money for Andy Kim’s re-election campaign in New Jersey’s 3rd district.

“As President Obama’s Secretary of State, I worked with Andy Kim in the White House Situation Room. And I proudly watched him win one of the closest House races in the country in November,” Kerry said in an e-mail today.  “But now, Republicans have made defeating Andy a top priority in 2020 — if we don’t move quickly, his seat could be lost.”

Kim (D-Marlton) narrowly defeated two-term Rep. Tom MacArthur last fall. 

“Andy is running for re-election in one of the most important House races in the country, and nonpartisan analysts have already rated this seat a ‘toss-up’,” Kerry wrote.

Kerry, a former Massachusetts senator and the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, campaigned in New Jersey last year for Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-Rocky Hill).   A former assistant U.S. Secretary of State under Kerry, Malinowski ousted five-term Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Clinton) in the 2018 mid-term elections.
